Re: [atomic-devel] Introducing bubblewrap

What I'm considering is not a complex daemon/service that create the container but just create veth pair.

Unc proof of concept uses two separated binaries unc that creates container and unet which is the setuid that configure it's network


Do you think splitting it into two binaries is better security or not?
And how is running setuid unet "configure my network please my privileged parnter" is different from calling a service via dbus or socket doing the same thing (from security point of view)

Yes I remember the guy that did that...  The idea there was to take
advantage of File System Capabilities.  I believe bubblewrap is
currently using
them although it needs SYS_ADMIN so that feature does not greatly
increase security for bubblewrap.

In some cases a client server relationship is better then Setuid, but I
believe in this case you would have a hard time doing something clean
and testable by security reasearchers as bubblewrap.
