to the machine at this point, and I'm getting:
"Log on failed. Incorrect user name or password, or user account temporarily locked."
How long does this temporary lockout last? I think I had one character wrong,
but I'm not sure now whether it's still wrong or it's failing because of the lockout.
I have not been able to find the answer to "How long does this temporary lockout last". Some have said that they think it is 15 minutes, but I have not been able to confirm this. I will keep looking.
Login Backoff Mechanism after failed login attempts
Intel AMT prevents online attacks to the Intel AMT systems by including a backoff
mechanism, triggered by a certain number of successive failed login attempts. If an attacker
tries to login to the Intel AMT system by guessing a password, and Intel AMT detects ten
successive login failures, further login attempts are disallowed for a period of time. The
timeout period starts at 5 seconds and reaches 80 seconds during continuous attack. After
one hour of no attack the backoff mechanism is reset. This feature substantially impedes a
system attack using password guessing.
