OpenSSL in container

If there are applications running in containers, which are working with network connections, are the libraries such as OpenSSL used from the container or from the host machine?
If the first one is the case, is it possible to configure all containers so that only the OpenSSL library from the underlying host is used?


Always the container.

No. Containers never use or see the host’s filesystem (exception: docker run -v option).
