Hardening Docker daemon with Rootless mode


Docker CE 19.03 is going to support “Rootless mode”, which allows running the entire Docker daemon and its dependencies as a non-root user on the host, so as to protect the host from malicious containers in a simple but very strong way. Rootless mode is also attractive for users who cannot get `sudo` permission for installing Docker on shared computing machines. e.g. HPC users. In this talk, Akihiro Suda, the author of the Rootless mode (PR: moby#38050), will explain how users can get started with Rootless mode. He will also explain the implementation details of Rootless mode and planned enhancements such as LDAP integration.
