Add captcha for IBM WSC OrderHub portal for additional security
Problem Statement - Brute-force attack/Reverse brute-force attack issues in the Order Hub console reported by security team.
Description - When the attacker gets a hold of either username or password by some means, they can systematically check for all the possible combinations until the correct one is found. Alternatively, the attacker can attempt to guess the key which is typically created from the password using a key derivation function. In a reverse brute-force attack, a single (usually common) password is tested against multiple usernames or encrypted files. The process may be repeated for a select few passwords. In such a strategy, the attacker is not targeting a specific user.
Solution: Integrating captcha or MFA for additional security
What is your industry?
How will this idea be used?
If captcha is implemented, it can prevent auto bots from performing brute/reverse brute force attacks if the attacker gets a hold of username or password. With the current implementation of using just username/password to access the console, it poses a security risk. In the times, when almost most of the enterprise applications use captcha or employ MFA to prevent such risks, it's necessary to be in line with the security threats that could be prevented in the near future.
