Force session timeout

  Asked By: Pauline    Date: Apr 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1872

Is there a means in SPS2003/IIS6 to force the user's session to
timeout? For instance, if a user authenticates to the portal on a
public workstation and then walks away we want to prevent that user's
session from being available after xx amount of time. Any suggestions?

Not OOTB, but it is possible to create such a thing using an HTTP Filter in IIS
which stores it's own session  info on the server and highjacks the request to
return a 401 after the timeout.
