How can we improve Ignition?

Lockout gateway, designer and client access for multiple failed login attempts.

Looking at it from a security point of view, I would like to have options to lock out access to the gateway and designer if too many failed attempt to login. This can be reset from the Gateway Control Utility or a specified amount of time has pass. It would be nice to this built in for "client" or project access also - currently being done through scripts.

    I like this. A cool approach is to make the wait time after failed attempt very short (perhaps milliseconds), then double it each time. A few characteristics:
    1. Admin can easily reset in the Gateway.
    2. Configured as security option in Gateway. Can cover: designer, gateway, client
    3. "cooldown" occurs, e.g. resets or backs off after an hour.
