Sessions: Ruby on Rails 5 Essential Training

Sessions are another way to add “state” to a user’s interaction with a website. Traditionally, sessions values are stored on the server (in a file or a database table) and a reference identifier is stored in a cookie in the user’s browser. By default, Rails stores session data inside encrypted, signed cookies in the user’s browser. This approach prevents inspection, tampering, and session hijacking.
