How can a user be locked after a certain number of wrong logon attempts?

We have the request that a user should be locked (or deactivated) when he made a certain number (eg 5.) of wrong logon attempts. We have an Odoo Website published to the internet and we want to make it harder that someone uses an brute force attack to figure out the users password.

Is this possible with Odoo V8 RC1 (not the SaaS)?

@Andreas, I've asked a similar question in another thread, however unfortunately I have not had any luck at this point in time. I will be looking to build a module at a later date that works with the fail2ban on Ubuntu to allow for IP blocking after repeated attempts for a period of time. Unfortunately there does not seem to be anything out there in the public github and launchpad repositories that does this currently, however i'll update this thread once i've implemented something myself.
