Annex H: Sockets Binding (informative)
1 Introduction

Sockets are used to represent and manage a communication channel between two entities on a network. The channel can be connection oriented, in which the two entities establish a session for the duration of the conversation, or it can be connectionless, in which messages are simply sent out to the intended recipient.
