As per the Information Security Requirement of my Organization, I am trying to configure Session timeout after 15 minutes in SharePoint 2016 On Premise Application but unable to achieve the same.

I've Tried this solution but it doesn't work and I don't find any possible solution to achieve the same in AD based Authentication.

Please Help!

If using Windows Authentication, in effect, there is no Session Timeout. This is because Kerberos and NTLM are stateless protocols, so they do not maintain session and re-auth immediately.
