Fix Recommendation

To ensure that the SSH idle timeout occurs precisely when the "ClientAliveCountMax" is set, run the following command:

/usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/sed -i.bak 's/.*ClientAliveCountMax.*/ClientAliveCountMax 0/' /etc/ssh/sshd_config

Check Contents

The SSH daemon "ClientAliveCountMax" option must be set correctly. To verify the SSH idle timeout will occur when the "ClientAliveCountMax" is set, run the following command:

/usr/bin/sudo /usr/bin/grep ^ClientAliveCountMax /etc/ssh/sshd_config

If the setting is not "ClientAliveCountMax 0", this is a finding.
