OSI - Presentation Layer

OSI Model : Presentation Layer


Section Goal: Provide an overview of the OSI Presentation Layer.

Learning Objectives

Learning Objective 1

After completing this section, students should be able to describe the OSI Presentation Layer, and what it is used for.

This layer is used to support differences in data representation such as cryptography. The data sender notifies the receiver of the data format, and the receiver uses this information to prepare the data for the Application Layer. This layer is the best layer for implementing encryption strategies.
