Re: [atomic-devel] Oneway - a way to drop privileges inside containers and lock it like that

I only want two processes

confd and my application (apache or php-fpm or node . or uwsgi ...)

The role of confd is to watch etcd/consul and update config when needed.

I guess systemd is overkill for such simple thing (I don't want  ttys, crons, dbus, journald....)

systemd in a container would just run journald as well as systemd, not much more unless you tell it to. 
Having journald would allow you to catch messages that httpd writes to syslog, but fine.

Apache is a well-established and it have a way to drop privileges but this is not the case with "node ."

I'm not sure about k8s no new priv.
Ex. I want confd as root and node as app.

I guess apache does not have nnp option.

A couple of things.  1 you could use real systemd rather then using some
other init system.

Secondly and perhaps conflicting, is why not run apache as non root to
start rather then dropping

privs.  Apache will run perfectly fine without requiring root privs.
Also you could set the NO_NEW_PRIVS

right in docker/k8s.
