4.15 Making a Container Use the Host's UTS Namespace

By default, a container runs with a UTS namespace (which defines the system name and domain) that is different from the UTS namespace of the host. To make a container use the same UTS namespace as the host, you can use the --uts=host option with the docker create and docker run commands from version 1.7.0 of Docker onward. This setting allows the container to track the UTS namespace of the host or to set the host name and domain from the container.


As the container has full access to the UTS namespace of the host, this feature is inherently insecure.
