The nonlinear kinetic model of cosmic ray acceleration in supernova remnants (SNRs) is used to describe the properties of the Kepler's SNR. The calculated expansion law and the radio and X-ray emission produced by the accelerated cosmic rays in Kepler's SNR agree quite well with the observations. A rather large interior magnetic field about 200 μG is required to give a good fit for the radio and X-ray synchrotron emission. The predicted TeV gamma-ray emission, which is of hadronic origin, is expected at a detectable level.
