Internet password lockout whitelist

The internet passowrd lockout feature needs to be improved, like more logging, idea: DOMINO-I-389.

It would be an improvment if there would be an option to add a whitelist for IP ranges. So if a user is locked out he could still login within an trustet internal IP range. The user could then still be able to work within this IP range and not be completly locked out.

    Still it is unclear to me what problem it would solve. Can you please explain?

    It's very unlikely that a brute force attack is done within an internal (trusted) range.
    For the user it would be less disruptive if an attack from the internet is locking his account all the time. So he would be able to login at least within this defined range. It would be just optional.

    I don't get the benefit of this. If the password is entered wrong, why would you allow unlimited wrong attempts? Isn't this an invitation for running brute force attacks from within this network range?
