> (Updated based on discussion in the JIRA)
> 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.
