Contributed by grey on from the mind over brute force dept.
Ingo Schwarze offered up some patches he has made to sshd and pfctl here.
And lastly, Jose Nazario pointed out timelox from br1an (of Stephanie and metawire.org). From the README: "Timelox is code to be used in network services to help fight brute force attacks." Keeping it relevant to the discussions of ssh brute force attack defenses, br1an has included a patch specifically for sshd.
Naturally, none of these patches or recommendations are official, but our readers may find some of them useful.
