Containers have the advantage over native processes because of the isolation provided by Linux kernel, while keeping good performance with almost no degradation. This fact promises that containers are destined to succeed, as known from many studies and practices in software engineering. However, when it comes to kernel hacking, unlike VMs, containers seem impossible because of their natural limit: they does not have their own kernel and share one with the host. In This presentation, Quey-Liang Kao will introduce the techniques involved in breaking the mentioned restriction, describe his implementation work which turns a container into a dynamic kernel hacking tool, show some applications, and discuss the unresolved challenges and possible solutions.
