sessiond allows a cluster of SSL/TLS servers to share their session caches in order to prevent each node of the cluster from negotiating a separate session. SSL/TLS session is basically a set of secret values (symmetric encryption keys, MAC secrets) shared between a client and a server. The use of asymmetric cryptography required to establish new sessions is the main performance bottleneck of the SSL/TLS protocol.
