Request for autolocking the vyos console


To protect the vyos console in a virtualized environment I am kindly asking to provide the autolock daemon (via vyos CLI?) in the next or future release.

I am thinking about settings like “set service autolock timeout 5”.

Does this make sense?


export $TMOUT=[time_in_seconds]

will do the trick currently

but not integrated into the system

Will see if I can make a patch to include it in the general system :wink:
