You use cookies, include hidden fields, and/or rewriting of urls to
include a session identifier.  There are a number of ways of handling
session identifiers, it could be a random string you map to a user on
the server side (i.e. in a database), or you could include the
information in session identifer and protect it with hmac.  

Your favorite search engine should turn up lots of results.

Good luck,
