What is Correlation?

When using software, some values are fed back directly from the server regarding any request made. These unique values are called dynamic values. In order to determine these values, correlation is done.

Dynamic values can be session ids, date values, session states, authorization tokens, etc. They are generated and sent by the server primarily for security.
