Are Java API's available for locking out user?

We have a customer asking us if we can provide the functionality as described in: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-37575

Both for JIRA and Confluence. So basically if the max count of login attempts fail lock the user out permanently. Thus requiring some administrator action to unlock the user. 

Wondering if there are Java API's for this? Events to catch failed login attempts?

At the least I need some type of event when use login fails based on max attempts. Then I could at least remove the user from jira-users group.
