PIX CONSOLE PORT SAFE ACCESS

I have got the following symptom during the configuration of a PIX525 using the port console with the emulator 'Hyper Terminal' :

First : no password protection

Second : when you disconnect from the port console and come back later, you have direct access on the screen you leave before you disconnect : NO SESSION TIMEOUT.

This could be dangerous when your active session was in 'enable mode'.

Any help to secure the console port access will be welcome.

In version 6.1 you can use a local database for console access. You have to enter a username/password setting and indicate that you want to use the local database to authenticate console access:

username xxxxx password yyyyyy privilege zz (1-15)

aaa authentication serial console LOCAL
