Timeout for IDM/IME/CLI

Hi,

Anyone know the session idle time out value for IDM, CLI and IME?

I did not find this in the documentation and I have a PCI-DSS audit coming up so this would be nice to know.

IPS 4255 - 7.0(6)

Timeout for IDM/IME/CLI

IDM and IME are SDEE based sessions, initiated by your Client PC to the sensor. The IPS Sensor acts as a host and as such there is no timeout. The ssh server resides on the IPS Sensor, but I believe none of these has a default timeout value. In 7.0 it looks like that only thing you can alter is the password policy enforcement:

And nothing about timeouts under ssh configuration:
