Looking back to discussion on the v6 patch 2/10 (2019-05-30 15:29 Paul
Moore[1], 2019-07-08 14:05 RGB[2]) , it occurs to me that the
ns_capable(CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL) application was dangerous since there was
no parental accountability in storage or reporting. Now that is in
place, it does seem a bit more reasonable to allow it, but I'm still not
clear on why we would want both mechanisms now. I don't understand what
the last line in that email meant: "We would probably still want a
ns_capable(CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL) restriction in this case." Allow
ns_capable(CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL) to govern these actions, or restrict
ns_capable(CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL) from being used to govern these actions?

If an unprivileged user has been given capcontid to be able run their
own container orchestrator/engine and spawns a user namespace with
CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL, what matters is capcontid, and not CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL.
I could see needing CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL *in addition* to capcontid to give
it finer grained control, but since capcontid would have to be given to
each process explicitly anways, I don't see the point.

If that unprivileged user had not been given capcontid,
giving itself or one of its descendants CAP_AUDIT_CONTROL should not let
it jump into the game all of a sudden unless the now chained audit
container identifiers are deemed accountable enough. And then now we
need those hard limits on container depth and network namespace
container membership.
