Re: [docker/for-mac] Support for sharing UNIX sockets (#483)

There now exists an official workaround for this as of Docker for Mac >= 2.2.0.0.

REF: File system sharing (osxfs) | Docker Documentation

The solution involves using a "magic path" specifically for SSH_AUTH_SOCK: /run/host-services/ssh-auth.sock

Mount this special path into the container via docker run args:

Code:
SSH_AUTH_SOCK_MAGIC_PATH='/run/host-services/ssh-auth.sock'
docker run -ti -v ${SSH_AUTH_SOCK_MAGIC_PATH}:${SSH_AUTH_SOCK_MAGIC_PATH} \
           -e SSH_AUTH_SOCK=${SSH_AUTH_SOCK_MAGIC_PATH} \
           some-container/needing-ssh-agent

Note that this does not resolve the main issue of mounting arbitrary Unix sockets into a container. At least it works for ssh-agent / SSH_AUTH_SOCK!

So, this fix does not help when setting up a reverse web proxy to a Unix socket in the container (as mentioned above).

what is the advantage of unix sockets?

Hi, i understood that there are several type of sockets: TCP, UDP & Unix. i wondered, what is the performance advantages of unix socket of the other types? isn't it equal to use UDP with localhost as destination over unix socket? Thanks in advance, Sariel (1 Reply)

MAC_SEEOTHERUIDS(4)					   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 				       MAC_SEEOTHERUIDS(4)

NAME
mac_seeotheruids -- simple policy controlling whether users see other users SYNOPSIS
To compile the policy into your kernel, place the following lines in your kernel configuration file: options MAC options MAC_SEEOTHERUIDS Alternately, to load the module at boot time, place the following line in your kernel configuration file: options MAC and in loader.conf(5): mac_seeotheruids_load="YES" DESCRIPTION
The mac_seeotheruids policy module, when enabled, denies users to see processes or sockets owned by other users. To enable mac_seeotheruids, set the sysctl OID security.mac.seeotheruids.enabled to 1. To permit superuser awareness of other credentials by virtue of privilege, set the sysctl OID security.mac.seeotheruids.suser_privileged to 1. To allow users to see processes and sockets owned by the same primary group, set the sysctl OID security.mac.seeotheruids.primarygroup_enabled to 1. To allow processes with a specific group ID to be exempt from the policy, set the sysctl OID security.mac.seeotheruids.specificgid_enabled to 1, and security.mac.seeotheruids.specificgid to the group ID to be exempted. Label Format No labels are defined for mac_seeotheruids. SEE ALSO

The mac_seeotheruids policy module first appeared in FreeBSD 5.0 and was developed by the TrustedBSD Project. AUTHORS
This software was contributed to the FreeBSD Project by Network Associates Labs, the Security Research Division of Network Associates Inc. under DARPA/SPAWAR contract N66001-01-C-8035 (``CBOSS''), as part of the DARPA CHATS research program. BUGS
See mac(9) concerning appropriateness for production use. The TrustedBSD MAC Framework is considered experimental in FreeBSD. While the MAC Framework design is intended to support the containment of the root user, not all attack channels are currently protected by entry point checks. As such, MAC Framework policies should not be relied on, in isolation, to protect against a malicious privileged user. BSD
