  • Expired tokens should not trigger bruteforce protection #12140

When using atoken obtained via OAuth the token expires. Resulting in
brute force attempts hitting the requesting IP.

This resets the brute force attempts for that UID on a valid refresh of
the token.

Fixes #12131

If we hit an expired token there is no need to continue checking. Since
we know it is a token.

We also should not register this with the bruteforce throttler as it is
actually a valid token. Just expired. Instead the authentication should
fail. And buisness continues as usual.

generally, sure :)

in this case, I had better not. Sorry. Rebasing your second (cleanup) commit gives funny conflicts

DU lib/private/Authentication/Token/Manager.php
DU lib/private/Authentication/Token/PublicKeyTokenProvider.php
DU tests/lib/Authentication/Token/PublicKeyTokenProviderTest.php

... and since I'm not familiar with (the rest of) Nextcloud authentication, I'd rather leave it up to you. Not sure what the consequences would be. It's not really necessary for Moodle, though. I'll advise 14.0.4 as the minimum Nextcloud version anyway ;)
