[openstack-dev] [Zun] Containers in privileged mode

Hi Joao,

Right now, it is impossible to create containers with escalated privileged,
such as setting privileged mode or adding additional caps. This is
intentional for security reasons. Basically, what Zun currently provides is
"serverless" containers, which means Zun is not using VMs to isolate
containers (for people who wanted strong isolation as VMs, they can choose
secure container runtime such as Clear Container). Therefore, it is
insecure to give users control of any kind of privilege escalation.
However, if you want this feature, I would love to learn more about the use

Best regards,
