apptainer capability

Manage Linux capabilities for users and groups


Capabilities allow you to have fine grained control over the permissions that your containers need to run.

NOTE: capability add/drop commands require root to run. Granting capabilities to users allows them to escalate privilege inside the container and will likely give them a route to privilege escalation on the host system as well. Do not add capabilities to users who should not have root on the host system.
