What is runtimebroker.exe?

Part of Runtime Broker by Microsoft

What is it?

Windows Runtime Broker, part of Windows 8 is a separate process that handles the security permission of separated processes like sensors or cameras. Access to Windows APIs is monitored at runtime by the Runtime Broker, which prevents programs from violating core security of Windows.
Description of runtimebroker.exe from Microsoft
Windows Runtime, or WinRT, is a cross-platform application architecture on the Windows 8 operating system. WinRT supports development in C++/CX (Component Extensions, a language based on C++) and the managed languages C# and VB.NET, as well as JavaScript. WinRT applications natively support both the x86 and ARM architectures, and also run inside a sandboxed environment to allow for greater security and stability. WinRT is essentially a COM-based API, although relying on an enhanced COM. Because of its COM-like basis, WinRT allows interfacing from multiple languages, just as COM does, but it's essentially an unmanaged, native API. Applications developed using WinRT for Windows 8 were described by Microsoft as being Metro-style apps; a term tying them in with a design language of the same name used heavily throughout the operating system.
