Hi Russell,

Not that I know of... but, in the AstLinux project we have written a much simplified variant as an "Adaptive Ban" plugin for AIF.

The "Adaptive Ban" plugin is in the "contrib" folder of Arno's standard distribution:

The latest "Adaptive Ban" plugin version can be found here:

(Note: remove the SVN file ".sh" suffixes to be used directly with generic AIF)

Currently the only supported analysis types are:
# A list of analysis types that are applied
# Choose from: sshd asterisk kamailio lighttpd prosody pptpd

I mention this only as a template to customize for your particular purpose.  There may be tweaks needed for you specific distro.
