 for interface
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (18 May 2012) :

  interface
  
      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.
  
     See also graphical user interface, Application Program
     Interface.
