In this example, there are 36s seconds left until this host will not be blocked any more.
Context English Turkish (tr_TR) State
A custom number of failures in the <literal>nfail</literal> column can be defined for an address. This is useful for exceptions to a specific rule, to maybe allow someone a less strict application of rules or a bit more leniency in login tries. Blocking is disabled when an asterisk is used in this sixth field.
Remote rules allow a stricter enforcement of limits on attempts to log in compared to attempts coming from a local network like an office.
Blacklistd Client Configuration
There are a few software packages in FreeBSD that can utilize blacklistd's functionality. The two most prominent ones are <citerefentry><refentrytitle>ftpd</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry> and <citerefentry><refentrytitle>sshd</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry> to block excessive connection attempts. To activate blacklistd in the SSH daemon, add the following line to <filename>/etc/ssh/sshd_config</filename>:
UseBlacklist yes
Restart sshd afterwards to make these changes take effect.
Blacklisting for <citerefentry><refentrytitle>ftpd</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry> is enabled using <literal>-B</literal>, either in <filename>/etc/inetd.conf</filename> or as a flag in <filename>/etc/rc.conf</filename> like this:
That is all that is needed to make these programs talk to blacklistd.
Blacklistd Management
Blacklistd provides the user with a management utility called <citerefentry><refentrytitle>blacklistctl</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry>. It displays blocked addresses and networks that are blacklisted by the rules defined in <citerefentry><refentrytitle>blacklistd.conf</refentrytitle><manvolnum>5</manvolnum></citerefentry>. To see the list of currently blocked hosts, use <command>dump</command> combined with <option>-b</option> like this.
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>blacklistctl dump -b</userinput>
address/ma:port id nfail last access OK 6/3 2019/06/08 14:30:19
This example shows that there were 6 out of three permitted attempts on port 22 coming from the address range <systemitem class="netmask"></systemitem>. There are more attempts listed than are allowed because SSH allows a client to try multiple logins on a single TCP connection. A connection that is currently going on is not stopped by blacklistd. The last connection attempt is listed in the <literal>last access</literal> column of the output.
To see the remaining time that this host will be on the blacklist, add <option>-r</option> to the previous command.
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>blacklistctl dump -br</userinput>
address/ma:port id nfail remaining time OK 6/3 36s
In this example, there are 36s seconds left until this host will not be blocked any more.
Removing Hosts from the Block List
Sometimes it is necessary to remove a host from the block list before the remaining time expires. Unfortunately, there is no functionality in blacklistd to do that. However, it is possible to remove the address from the PF table using pfctl. For each blocked port, there is a child anchor inside the blacklistd anchor defined in <filename>/etc/pf.conf</filename>. For example, if there is a child anchor for blocking port 22 it is called <literal>blacklistd/22</literal>. There is a table inside that child anchor that contains the blocked addresses. This table is called port followed by the port number. In this example, it would be called <literal>port22</literal>. With that information at hand, it is now possible to use <citerefentry><refentrytitle>pfctl</refentrytitle><manvolnum>8</manvolnum></citerefentry> to display all addresses listed like this:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>pfctl -a <replaceable>blacklistd/22</replaceable> -t <replaceable>port22</replaceable> -T show</userinput>
After identifying the address to be unblocked from the list, the following command removes it from the list:
<prompt>#</prompt> <userinput>pfctl -a <replaceable>blacklistd/22</replaceable> -t <replaceable>port22</replaceable> -T delete <replaceable></replaceable></userinput>
The address is now removed from PF, but will still show up in the blacklistctl list, since it does not know about any changes made in PF. The entry in blacklistd's database will eventually expire and be removed from its output eventually. The entry will be added again if the host is matching one of the block rules in blacklistd again.
