[Icecast] Securing the Icecast admin page

Hi to all Icecast community members,

I’d like to know if anyone has successfully configured fail2ban or something similar in order to provide additional security to the login section of the Icecast2 admin area, and whether it is worthwhile to actually do so?

If fail2ban is not the way to go, are there any recommended tools or actions that I should take. I would like to prevent repeated failed login attempts at the admin login page. I have noticed that the Icecast2 access.log does not seem to log failed attempts anyway, so I am not sure how useful fail2ban would be in this regard.
