The integral equations used in the microscopic theory of the electric double layer are extended to the case of an impermeable interface separating two conducting media (ionic solutions or plasma). This system is a model for an ideally polarizable interface. Exact relations are given for the contact values of the one particle density function, and also for the pair correlation functions. We solve numerically the Poisson-Boltzmann (PB), the hypernetted chain (HNC), and mean spherical (MSA) approximations, and compare the results to the exact solution of the one component plasma in two dimensions.
