Subject [jira] [Commented] (YARN-4262) Allow whitelisted users to run privileged docker containers.
Date Thu, 15 Oct 2015 10:46:05 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/YARN-4262?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14958720#comment-14958720

Sidharta Seethana commented on YARN-4262:

It is not clear to me why there are compilation failures (https://builds.apache.org/job/PreCommit-YARN-Build/9450/artifact/patchprocess/testrun_hadoop-yarn-api.txt)
- the 'cannot find symbol' errors refer to symbols that are included in the patch (YarnConfiguration.java).

> There are scenarios where privileged containers are necessary in order to run certain
kinds of applications (one example is trying to run postresql/oracle inside containers). However,
given the security implications, we should ensure that : 
> 1) privileged containers are disabled by default
> 2) if enabled, only a whitelisted set of users should be allowed to launch such containers
> 3) Not all containers launched by whitelisted users need to be privileged containers
: whitelisted users need to explicitly request that a privileged container be launched.
