What is Layer 6 of The OSI Model: Presentation Layer?

Layer 6 of The OSI Model: Presentation Layer is the layer of the ISO Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) model that establishes context between application-layer entities, in which the higher-layer entities may use different syntax and semantics if the presentation service provides a mapping between them. If a mapping is available, presentation service data units are encapsulated into session protocol data units, and passed down the stack. This layer provides independence from data representation (e.g., encryption) by translating between application and network formats. The presentation layer transforms data into the form that the application accepts. This layer formats and encrypts data to be sent across a network.
