Review Samsung Android 7 with Knox configuration settings to determine if the mobile device has the screen lock timeout set to 15 minutes or less.

This validation procedure is performed on both the MDM Administration Console and the Samsung Android 7 with Knox device.

On the MDM console, do the following:
1. Ask the MDM administrator to display the "Maximum Time to Lock" setting in the "Android Password Restrictions" rule.
2. Verify the value of the setting is "15" minutes or less.

On the Samsung Android 7 with Knox device, do the following:
1. Unlock the device.
2. Refrain from performing any activity on the device for "15" minutes.
3. Verify the device requires the user to enter the device unlock password to access the device.

If the MDM console "Maximum Time to Lock" is not set to "15" minutes or less for the screen lock timeout or on the Samsung Android 7 with Knox device, if after "15" minutes of inactivity the user does not have to enter password to unlock the device, this is a finding.
