4.9 Docker 1.3 新增特性和命令

Digital Signature Verification

Docker 1.3 版本将使用数字签名自动验证所有官方库的来源和完整性,如果一个官方镜像被篡改或者被破坏,目前 Docker 只会对这种情况发出警告而并不阻止容器的运行。

Inject new processes with docker exec

docker exec --help

Usage: docker exec [OPTIONS] CONTAINER COMMAND [ARG...]

Run a command in an existing container

  -d, --detach=false         Detached mode: run command in the background
  -i, --interactive=false    Keep STDIN open even if not attached
  -t, --tty=false            Allocate a pseudo-TTY

为了简化调试,可以使用 docker exec 命令通过 Docker API 和 CLI 在运行的容器上运行程序。

$ docker exec -it ubuntu_bash bash

上例将在容器 ubuntu_bash 中创建一个新的 Bash 会话。

Tune container lifecycles with docker create

我们可以通过 docker run <image name> 命令创建一个容器并运行其中的程序,因为有很多用户要求创建容器的时候不启动容器,所以 docker create 应运而生了。

$ docker create -t -i fedora bash

上例创建了一个可写的容器层 (并且打印出容器 ID),但是并不运行它,可以使用以下命令运行该容器:

$ docker start -a -i 6d8af538ec5

Security Options

通过 --security-opt 选项,运行容器时用户可自定义 SELinux 和 AppArmor 卷标和配置。

$ docker run --security-opt label:type:svirt_apache -i -t centos \ bash

上例只允许容器监听在 Apache 端口,这个选项的好处是用户不需要运行 docker 的时候指定 --privileged 选项,降低安全风险。
