Session tokens are used to identify a user's session within the HTTP traffic that the programme and all of its users exchange. A session token will be connected with each request and response, allowing the application to remember unique information about the client who is using it.

For example, when a user logs into your website, his credentials will remain on the server until he logs out, regardless of which web page he sees after entering in. As a result, a session is used to manage this. Session Management is a method used by the Web container to keep track of a user's session information.

You must first start the session before you can store any data in session variables. Simply call the PHP session start() method to start a new session. It will start a new session and assign the user a unique session ID. The PHP code in the following example simply creates a new session.

OWASP's best practises for session management Ensure that the session inactivity timeout is as low as feasible; it is advised that the session activity timeout is no more than a few hours. When a user re-authenticates or creates a new browser session, generate a new session identifier.
