Docker User Setup Security

Hey all, just a quick post, If you have read any of my guides you will see I always grant access to my Synology shares using the admin group ID and a my admin account user ID.

Thanks to a Reddit user /u/jasonsteelj that pointed out this is not very good practice if a container is compromised it has admin rights to all your shares.

In order to limit this you should setup a unique user for each container limiting its access to only the data it should.

So over the next few days I will be updating the guides to show how this is done, as well as updating my own personal containers.

    A guide to better security is always good.

    Sometime I am just happy to get things running, that I brush under the carpet anything that may break something.

      True, I never really thought of this element when I set out.

    Thank you very much,
