Vulnerability ID: V-32162


IA Controls: None

Severity: medium

Description: A session lock is a temporary action taken when a user stops work and moves away from the immediate physical vicinity of the information system but does not want to log out because of the temporary nature of the absence.

The session lock is implemented at the point where session activity can be determined. This is typically determined and performed at the operating system-level, but in some instances it may be at the application-level.

Regardless of where the session lock is determined and implemented, once invoked the session lock shall remain in place until the user re-authenticates. No other system or application activity aside from re-authentication shall unlock the system.

Databases do not typically perform session locking activities. This requirement is NA for databases.
