NEWUIDMAP(1)                      User Commands                     NEWUIDMAP(1)



NAME
       newuidmap - set the uid mapping of a user namespace

SYNOPSIS
       newuidmap pid uid loweruid count [uid loweruid count [ ... ]]

DESCRIPTION
       The newuidmap sets /proc/[pid]/uid_map based on its command line
       arguments and the uids allowed in /etc/subuid. Note that the root user is
       not exempted from the requirement for a valid /etc/subuid entry.

       After the pid argument, newuidmap expects sets of 3 integers:

       uid
           Beginning of the range of UIDs inside the user namespace.

       loweruid
           Beginning of the range of UIDs outside the user namespace.

       count
           Length of the ranges (both inside and outside the user namespace).

       newuidmap verifies that the caller is the owner of the process indicated
       by pid and that for each of the above sets, each of the UIDs in the range
       [loweruid, loweruid+count] is allowed to the caller according to
       /etc/subuid before setting /proc/[pid]/uid_map.

       Note that newuidmap may be used only once for a given process.
