<jargon> A boundary across which two systems communicate. An
interface might be a hardware connector used to link to other
devices, or it might be a convention used to allow
communication between two software systems. Often there is
some intermediate component between the two systems which
connects their interfaces together. For example, two EIA-232
interfaces connected via a serial cable.
