Docker Namespace and Permissions

Where can i find some information on namespaces with Docker and how the operating system accounts need to map permissions to the name space.

Also how to map the storage areas necessary and the areas for logs, etc. to the namespace and the permissions for the operating system.

Thanks

One of the first things that should be noted is that Docker namespaces are Linux namespaces. Docker just applies Linux namespaces natively. One of the best tutorials on using namespaces is at Toptal. This should get you up and running.

I shouldn’t answer questions like this so late at nite. For the purposes of the original question, this link: https://docs.docker.com/engine/security/userns-remap/ will provide sufficient information for their purposes to get containers up and running under namespaces with minimal misunderstandings.

Thank you :+1: for the great information @alantech
