Hi! I have a QNAP nas. I plan to store my documents on it so that I can access them everywhere via WebDAV. The nas has a feature called "Network Access Protection" which will block an IP address after five attempts to login. This is however not available for WebDAV. What I am wondering is, am I safe without it? My reasoning goes like this: The two main threats for unauthorized access are (1) Bots and (2) Hackers. 1. Bots would have to try more than a billions of billions of passwords before they succeed, they should try another target before they get in? 2. Hackers usually don't hack home-users, but rather companies and authorities? Even if they try to hack me, they would probably find a way through NAP and the password? I have already taken some security precautions. - Maximum password length (only 16 characters, which is bad) - Non standard port forwarded - Only WebDAV with SSL is forwarded - The account only has access to one folder, with a 1GB limit. So, what do you think? Is NAP neccessary for me?
