slirp-cni-plugin Build Status

A CNI plugin that provides container networking for unprivileged users ("slirp") using slirp4netns.

Build

Build the plugin using make and docker:

git clone https://github.com/mgoltzsche/slirp-cni-plugin.git
cd slirp-cni-plugin
make slirp

In order to run the examples below you can also build the dependencies slirp4netns and cnitool (written to build/bin):

make slirp4netns cnitool

Plugin configuration

JSON configuration file

An example configuration file can be found here.

FieldDefaultDescription
nameThe network/configuration file's name
typeName used to lookup the plugin binary (must be slirp to make the CNI runtime use this plugin)
mtu1500Maximum Transmission Unit (1499 < MTU < 65522)

Nothing but the MTU can be configured since slirp4netns provides sufficient defaults. Thus the ipam CNI plugin configuration is also not supported.

Environment variables

To make the plugin use a specific slirp4netns binary set the SLIRP4NETNS environment variable. Otherwise the plugin will lookup slirp4netns in the PATH.

Usage

This example shows how to create namespaces and add a slirp network using cnitool. Please note that the slirp4netns binary must be in the PATH or specified in the SLIRP4NETNS environment variable.

Terminal 1: Create user, network and mount namespaces:

$ unshare --user --map-root-user --net --mount
unshared$ echo $$ > /tmp/pid

Terminal 2: Add network interface:

$ export PATH="$(pwd)/build/bin:$PATH" \
         CNI_PATH="$(pwd):$CNI_PATH" \
         NETCONFPATH=$(pwd)/example-conf
$ cnitool add slirp "/proc/$(cat /tmp/pid)/ns/net"

Terminal 1: test connectivity:

unshared$ ip a
1: lo: <LOOPBACK> mtu 65536 qdisc noop state DOWN group default qlen 1
    link/loopback 00:00:00:00:00:00 brd 00:00:00:00:00:00
2: eth0: <BROADCAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN group default qlen 1000
    link/ether 12:72:1b:c0:e0:0e brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet 10.0.2.100/24 brd 10.0.2.255 scope global tap0
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    inet6 fe80::1072:1bff:fec0:e00e/64 scope link 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
unshared$ curl http://example.org
<!doctype html>
...

Terminal 2: remove slirp network from the namespace after you're done:

$ cnitool del slirp "/proc/$(cat /tmp/pid)/ns/net"
