SessionStateModule is ASP.NET's default session-state handler. It writes session data to and retrieves it from the session-state store and raises the Session_OnStart and Session_OnEnd events. For details about how to use ASP.NET session state to store and retrieve values for a user session, see ASP.NET Session State Overview.

You can replace the SessionStateModule with a custom implementation of the IHttpModule interface that manages session state. For an example of a custom session-state module, see the SessionStateUtility class overview.
