runC: The little engine that could (run Docker containers)
With the announcement of the OCI by Solomon Hykes at last summer's DockerCon, a Docker-contributed reference implementation of the OCI spec, called runC, was born. While some of you may have tried runC or have a history of poking at the OS layer integration library to Linux namespaces, cgroups and the like (known as libcontainer), many of you may not know what runC offers. In this talk Phil Estes, Docker engine maintainer who has also contributed to libcontainer and runC, will show what's possible using runC as a lightweight and fast runtime environment to experiment with lower-level features of the container runtime. Phil will introduce a conversion tool called "riddler", which can inspect and convert container configurations from Docker into the proper OCI configuration bundle for easy conversion between the two environments. He'll also demonstrate how to make custom configurations for trying out security features like user namespaces and seccomp profiles.
