Because the world needs more opensource DoS/DDoS mitigation and protection
autoban (always in lower case) is an up and coming rewrite and open sourcing of a DoS/DDoS mitigation and anti spam/abuse project based on Elasticsearch and used at a top 100 website. It originally was used to analyze centralized varnish logs and generate nginx deny rules based on various criteria. My goal is to vastly expand its capabilities and features.
