Security Issue - Linux Remote System Doesn't Properly Lock On Disconnect?
I'm a long-time Windows user who just moved over to Linux. Right out of the gate (unless I'm missing something), there seems to be a pretty big security issue:
*If I connect to a Linux host system from a remote Windows client, then disconnect, the remote Linux system doesn't lock. This is despite the Windows client being explicitly configured as: Extras->Options->Advanced->Lock remote computer=Always. In other words, the software leads you to believe that the remote will should be locked - but it's NOT actually locked. When you disconnect, the Linux machine is left sitting there just logged-in, such that anyone who happens to walk up can now begin using it. And you might not ever know. Likewise, if your remote connection drops, you might not even have a way to login & manually re-lock the host.
*Related, when connected to the Linux PC, Actions->Lock->Lock on session end is greyed. So it seems like there's no way to even proactively make your connection "safe" - aka to ensure it doesn't ever remain unlocked at the remote destination.
On Windows, hosts don't behave in such an insecure way; as soon as the client drops, whether they explicitly logout or the connection drops, the remote PC locks. This means you can connect from anywhere - i.e. even mobile clients - with confidence that the remote machine won't be left sitting unlocked.
Is there no way to have Linux hosts be the same?
