Origin: [L. sessio, fr. sedere, sessum, to sit: cf. F. session. See Sit.]
In computer science, in particular networking, a session is a semi-permanent interactive information interchange, also known as a dialogue, a conversation or a meeting, between two or more communicating devices, or between a computer and user. A session is set up or established at a certain point in time, and torn down at a later point in time. An established communication session may involve more than one message in each direction. A session is typically, but not always, stateful, meaning that at least one of the communicating parts needs to save information about the session history in order to be able to communicate, as opposed to stateless communication, where the communication consists of independent requests with responses. An established session is the basic requirement to perform a connection-oriented communication. A session also is the basic step to transmit in connectionless communication modes. However any unidirectional transmission does not define a session. Communication sessions may be implemented as part of protocols and services at the application layer, at the session layer or at the transport layer in the OSI model. ⁕Application layer examples:HTTP sessions, which allow associating information with individual visitorsA telnet remote login session
