OSI Model, LAYER 6 – The PRESENTATION Layer




LAYER 6 – The PRESENTATION Layer

  converts data from network format to computer expected format and vise versa (the network’s translator)
  For outgoing messages, it converts data into a generic format for network transmission; for incoming messages, it converts data from the generic network format to a format that the receiving application can understand.
  This layer is also responsible for
protocol conversions,
data encryption/decryption,
data compression/decompression
  A special software facility called a “redirector” operates at this layer to determine if a request is network related or not.
For example connect remote network printer to the computer.







The presentation layer is responsible for translation, compression, and encryption.
