Fail2ban is a daemon that can be run on your server to dynamically block clients that fail to authenticate correctly with your services repeatedly. This can help mitigate the affect of brute force attacks and illegitimate users of your services. In this guide, we'll show demonstrate how to install and configure fail2ban to protect SSH and Nginx on an Ubuntu 14.04 server.
