This paper describes the principles of the Session Layer of Open Systems Interconnection and the current standardization status. The Session Layer provides the means necessary for cooperating Presentation-entities to organize and synchronize their dialogue, and to manage their data exchange. To do this, the Session Layer provides services to establish a session connection between two Presentation-entities, and to support orderly data exchange interactions.
