•Protocol functions –Coordinate and maintain communications between two network nodes •Session –Connection for ongoing data exchange between two parties •Connection between remote client and access server •Connection between Web browser client and Web server

•Functions –Establishing and keeping alive communications link •For session duration –Keeping communications secure –Synchronizing dialogue between two nodes –Determining if communications ended •Determining where to restart transmission –Terminating communications –Set terms of communication –Identify session participants
