Do you have a better way to monitor brute force attacks on Linux Servers?

Communicator

This is the Linux system's secure log(/var/log/secure)。I tried to crack the user and password to login SSH .

now,I extracted two fields, one is the login_IP, one is the login_name.

SPL search on Splunk Enterprise :

index=test  Failed password for |transantion maxpause=2s maxspan=10s|where eventcount>=9|table login_name,login_IP

I think my method is not perfect, Then do you have a better way to monitor violence crack against Linux login

Honestly, ANY failed password for ROOT seems like it would suggest an issue. More than 3 in a second, worth alerting on.

 index=test  "Failed password for" 
| bin _time span=1s 
| rex "Failed password for (?<userid>.*?) from (?<fromIP)>[\d\.]+) port (?<port>\d+)" 
| stats  count as trycount, values(login_IP) as login_IP, values(port) as port  by  login_name _time
| streamstats window=2 sum(trycount) as eventcount values(port) as eventports by login_name 
| where eventcount>=4 OR (eventcount>=3 AND userid="root")
| table login_name,login_IP, eventports

The streamstats is to catch attacks that happen to split across an even second boundary. I'm assuming that the value for login_name is identical to what I'm extracting as userid, and the value for login_IP is identical to what I'm extracting as FromIP. I only left the rex in there because I'd like to see the port in this situation.

Obviously, this method will not catch a low-and-slow attack, but you were asking for a brute force attack, so there you go.

Attackers do not necessarily use the root account, you may also use other accounts

True, but my professional experience is that only employees with a good job-related reason should be trying for root, and they shouldn't screw up the password more than once.

For your purposes, the search becomes simpler...

 index=test  "Failed password for" 
 | bin _time span=1s 
 | stats  count as trycount, values(login_IP) as login_IP  by  login_name, _time
 | streamstats window=2 sum(trycount) as eventcount by login_name 
 | where eventcount>=9 
 | table _time login_name, login_IP, eventcount

and the port is not very important

It's a good start ; -)

A starting query from there -

Like me, this is too simple, I think not perfect.

There's a maxim that applies here - "Done" is better than "Perfect".

Start with anything which approximates the desired solution, and then trade up whenever you find a better way.

...and with splunk alerting, there's no reason you can't have three different imperfect solutions all running at the same time, and adjust them as conditions change.
