in reply to brute force protection

Since you're talking about Apache, I'll assume you're trying to protect brute-force HTTP Authentication style logins.

That's something I'm quite sure you will have a hard time doing within a traditional CGI environment.

Have you ever worked with mod perl?

There are some good starter docs at, and one seems specifically tailored to your needs: Blocking Greedy Clients.

I'm sure this could easily be modified to suit your purpose.
