In computer science, the kernel is the part of the operating system through which the hardware and software communicate. The kernel also assigns time to processes and/or threads, generally via a form of preemptive round-robin scheduling. A well-designed kernel provides for reliability and security. The terms "Monitor" and "Executive" have been used as synonyms for "Kernel", however those are now somewhat archaic terms.
