kernel mode is the supervisor mode where everything is allowed. whenever there is a system call execution changes frm the user mode to the kernel mode..kernel mode executing a system call is on behalf of the calling process....

in user mode direct access to the hardware and the memory is prohibted in order too avoid the malicious user ...

You will specify the kernel mode when your code is to be executed in the kernel mode.
