The Linux Plumbers 2017 containers track is focusing on Linux containers, both kernel space and user space.

This is a good opportunity for maintainers of container runtimes to interact with kernel developers and users.

CFP can be found here Submissions will be taken until the 4th of August 2017.

Tentative Schedule

This year we'll try to focus on short technical talks and demos and more general discussion topics such as (feel free to add to the list):

  • Unprivileged filesystem mounting
  • Container filesystem uid/gid shifting
  • Transition to CGroupV2
  • Alternative approach (than blkio) to restricting filesystem access throughput
  • cgroups
    • Cgmanager reborn?
    • V1 and V2
  • Namespaced LSMs
    • Apparmor namespaces (intro)
    • Smack namespaces (intro)
    • Namespaced SELinux
    • Namespaced IMA (intro and status)
    • Namespaced file capabilities status
  • Designing secure and sane container runtimes from first principles.
    • Limitations of kernel interfaces.
