The information system conceals, via the session lock, information previously visible on the display with a publicly viewable image.

  • Procedure:

    Hi Doug,

    Typically, this is provided by an operating system. Once you initiate the lock screen, any SBM session would be hidden behind the lock screen and therefore would be unavailable.
