eurephia_init - Initialisation utility for the eurephia OpenVPN plug-in. SYNOPSIS
eurephia_init [-V|--version] [-h|--help] [-l|--log <filename>] [-L|--log-level <log level>] [-N|--hash-threshold-min <ms>] [-M|--hash-threshold-max <ms>] [-D|--database-driver <path>] [-d|--database-args <args>] DESCRIPTION
This utility is only supposed to be used when installing eurephia. The purpose is to initialise the database eurephia will use, by setting up some standard configuration values and create an administrator account OPTIONS
Arguments used by eurephia_init: -V | --version Show version information -h | --help This help screen -l | --log <filename> Log file for debugging -L | --log-level <log level> Sets the log level -N | --hash-threshold-min <ms> : Benchmarking parameter, see below. Default 95ms -M | --hash-threshold-max <ms> : Benchmarking parameter, see below. Default 200ms -D | --database-driver <full path> Full path to the database driver (Required) -d | --database-args <arguments> Required database arguments for the driver (Required) BENCHMARKING
During the initialisation this utility will benchmark the CPU power by doing multiple SHA512 hash calculations. This is to determinate the optimal rounds the password hashes should use on the current computer. To make it more difficult to brute force passwords, eurephia imple- ments dynamic password hash rounds, based on a random number within in a given range. This benchmark will suggest an optimal range. To do this, two limits are defined, the shortest time and the longest time to be used for calculating a hash. The default values are 95ms and 200ms. If you want to modify those thresholds, you can do so with the --hash-threshold-min and --hash-threshold-max options. By increasing these numbers, you will allow the number of rounds to be increased.

eurephiadm-attempts - Manage the attempts log in eurephia DESCRIPTION
When a remote user fails to authenticate correctly, the attemp will be logged. After a certain amount of attempts the IP address, certifi- cate and/or user account will be blocked. The eurephiadm attempts command is used to get an overview over what is registered as failed attempts and to give the possibility to reset or delete the registered attempts counter. Available modes for the attempts command are: -D | --delete Delete a registered login attempt -R | --reset Reset a registered login attempt -l | --list List all registered login attempts -h | --help <mode> Show help DELETE MODE
The attempts delete mode will remove a record from the attempts log. One of the following parameters must be given (only one): -u | --username <username> User name to delete -d | --digest <SHA1 digest> Certificate SHA1 digest to delete -i | --ipaddr <IP address> IP address to delete -a | --attemptid <ID> Attempts record ID to delete RESET MODE
The attempts reset mode will reset the attempt counter. One of the following parameters must be given (only one): -u | --username <username> User name to reset -d | --digest <SHA1 digest> Certificate SHA1 digest to reset -i | --ipaddr <IP address> IP address to reset -a | --attemptid <ID> Attempts record ID to reset LIST MODE
The attempts list mode will show all registered login attempts. -v | --verbose Show more details Filters: -u | --username <username> List only attempts matching the given user name -d | --digest <SHA1 digest> List only attempts matching the given SHA1 certificate digest -i | --ipaddr <IP address> List only attempts matching the given IP address SEE ALSO
