Add CAP_NET_RAW capability
Closed, InvalidPublicFEATURE REQUEST


In T3676 support was added for setting container capabilities. Initially the following capabilities were supported:

  • net-admin
  • sys-time
  • setpcap

I would like to request support for the CAP_NET_RAW capability, since I have a container that requires using RAW and/or PACKET sockets. Unfortunately this is not covered by the CAP_NET_ADMIN capability.

If agreed, I could create a PR for adding this.
