Piggybacking is gaining access to restricted communication channel by using session that another user has already established. Piggybacking can be defeated by logging off before leaving a workstation or terminal or by initiating a protected mode, such as via a screensaver, that requires re-authentication before access can be resumed.

If two stations exchange data, each needs to maintain two windows, one for transmit and one for receive, and each side needs to send the data and acknowledgments to the other. To provide efficient support of this requirement, a feature known as piggybacking.

Data and acknowledgment are sent in the same frame is called piggybacking.

Piggybacking is a bi-directional data transmission technique in the network layer (OSI model). It makes the most of the sent data frames from receiver to emitter, adding the confirmation that the data frame sent by the sender was received successfully (acknowledgement).

Piggybacking is a technique used in bidirectional data transfer. Here, if two nodes are exchanging data, then acknowledgement for node 1s frame is attached with node 2s next frame, which is to be sent to node 1.

Piggybacking: It is the technique used in the bi directional data transmission in the network layer. It is used to improve the efficiency by piggy back the acknowledgement in the data frame instead of sending a separate frame.
