personalized statistics: track the attackers of all your servers with one key!

Published on 13.11.2013 15:26

There was this How To on how to get personalized stats from badips.com some time ago.
We love to see a lot of users tracking their attackers since then :)
However, we think not many are aware of the full potential of the feature: A key works over more than one server! The How To correctly describes how to get your first key:

wget -q -O - http://www.badips.com/get/key

But it is not mentioned that you can set the same key for multiple reporters to see a consolidated view over all the reported IPs. To set a key on a server, do this:

http://www.badips.com/set/key/<your key>

If you have already set a key but want to overwrite it, use ?force, see also here: API Documentation.
