UBTU-16-010060 - Ubuntu operating system sessions must be automatically logged out after 15 minutes of inactivity - readonly

Configure the Ubuntu operating system to initiate a session logout after a '15' minutes of inactivity. Create a file to contain the system-wide session auto logout script (if it does not already exist) with the following command: # sudo touch /etc/profile.d/autologout.sh Add the following lines to the '/etc/profile.d/autologout.sh' script: TMOUT=900 readonly TMOUT export TMOUT
