IBM i Security Session Timeout

A flexible policy for forcing session timeouts in native green screen application sessions


Management of session timeout events through a proprietary system of users and groups and operating system parameters


  • Different session timeout criteria for different user groups (as opposed to "one size fits all" option provided in the operating system)
  • System defaults for users without specific definitions
  • Specification of specific idle time
  • Specification of action to take when timeout occurs
  • Optional sending of messages to the system administrator

Organizational Benefits

  • Allows the organization to easily implement important security best practices, which would otherwise be highly time consuming tasks
  • Meeting of regulatory compliance requirements (GDPR and others)
