About: Login session

An Entity of Type: Thing, from Named Graph: http://dbpedia.org, within Data Space: dbpedia.org

In computing, a login session is the period of activity between a user logging in and logging out of a (multi-user) system. On Unix and Unix-like operating systems, a login session takes one of two main forms: * When a textual user interface is used, a login session is represented as a kernel session — a collection of process groups with the logout action managed by a session leader. * Where an X display manager is employed, a login session is considered to be the lifetime of a designated user process that the display manager invokes.

  • In computing, a login session is the period of activity between a user logging in and logging out of a (multi-user) system. On Unix and Unix-like operating systems, a login session takes one of two main forms: * When a textual user interface is used, a login session is represented as a kernel session — a collection of process groups with the logout action managed by a session leader. * Where an X display manager is employed, a login session is considered to be the lifetime of a designated user process that the display manager invokes. On Windows NT-based systems, login sessions are maintained by the kernel and control of them is within the purview of the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service (LSA). <a href="/wiki/Winlogon" title="Winlogon">winlogon</a> responds to the secure attention key, it requests the LSA to create login sessions on login, and terminates all of the processes belonging to a login session on logout.
