Definition of Login Session

A Login Session describes the connection established by a user with a Login, until either the user or the system or service to which he connected terminates the connection.

Normally, a user must only provide Credentials for Authentication at the start of a Login Session. He is then authorized to use some or all of the services offered by the Host System to which he connected.
