I would like to see some kind of YAST-like tool for implementing PAM features for all types of logins.

As it is now you can attempt unlimited logins via the terminal or a locked KDE screen.

If there was a GUI for PAM that allowed the user to set maximum password tries, time-frames that login is allowed, and how long a session can last, then our computers would be much more secure.

I have an encrypted hard drive, but once the computer is booted up and the hard drive is decrypted, I have no way of stopping a brute force attack.

For the average user, PAM is too complicated to use all its features without reading for hours.

This seems like the perfect feature to add to YAST.
