Chap Secure Login
Whenever you try to login into your website, you can use this plugin to trasmit your password encrypted. The encryption process is done by the Chap protocol; this is particularly useful when you can’t use ssl or other kinds of secure protocols.
Login Encrypt is a security plugin. It uses a complex combination of DES and RSA. It was first developed by ELSERVER for securing login in the hosting control panel, and then released as a WordPress plugin.
Login LockDown records the IP address and timestamp of every failed login attempt. If more than a certain number of attempts are detected within a short period of time from the same IP range, then the login function is disabled for all requests from that range. This helps to prevent brute force password discovery.
