Summary
Use Linux containers as an alternative virtualization technique to virtualize your operating system environment. This book will cover LXC's unmatched flexibility with virtualization and LXD's smooth user experience. Practical LXC and LXD begins by introducing you to Linux containers (LXC and LXD). You will then go through use cases based on LXC and LXD. Next, you will see the internal workings of LXC and LXD by considering the repositories and templates used. You will then learn how to integrate LXC and LXD with common virtualization and orchestration tools such as libvirt and SaltStack. Finally, you will dive into containerization and security. The book will explore some of the common problems in security and provide a case study on how containerization can help mitigate some of the operating system-level security issues in an IoT environment. You will: Get an introduction to Linux containers Discover the basics of LXC and LXD See use cases that can be solved with LXC and LXD - for developers, devops, and system administrators Master LXC and LXD repositories Use LXC and LXD with common virtualization and orchestration tools Consider a containerization and security in IoT case study

Chapter 1:  Introduction to Linux ContainersChapter Goal: This chapter gives a formal introduction to containers, what is the need for containers, how flexible are containers than traditional virtualization techniques. We also walk through some of the features which Linux kernel offers which helps in providing containerization. Touch upon containerization equivalents in other operating systems such as Solaris, BSD, Parallels, etc.No of pages 15 -- 20 pagesChapter 2: Installation Chapter Goal: Discuss various installation methods available in some major GNU/Linux distributions in order to install LXC and LXD.No of pages: 15 -- 20 pages Chapter 3: Basics and getting started with LXC, LXDChapter Goal: Explain what is LXC and LXD with some basics. The first steps towards using LXC and LXD will be discussed in this chapter.No of pages : 20 -- 25 pagesChapter 4: Use cases that will be solved by LXC and LXDChapter Goal: Discuss various use cases that could be addressed by using LXC and LXC for different classes of users.No of pages: 40 -- 50 pagesSub -- Topics: 1. For Developers2. Dev-ops3. System AdministratorsChapter 5: LXC, LXD repositoriesChapter Goal: This chapter discusses about using LXC, LXD repositories and the templates that are involved. It will give an overview on the internal working of LXC and LXD.No of pages: 15 -- 20 pagesChapter 6: LXC and LXD with common virtualization and orchestration toolsChapter Goal: This chapter discusses integrating LXC and LXD with commong virtualization and orchestration tools such as libvirt, SaltStack, etc.No of pages: 15 -- 20 pagesChapter 7: Containerization and security in IoT (Case Study)Chapter Goal: This chapter explores the common problems in IoT security and does a case study on how containerization can help mitigate some of the operating system level security issues in IoT environment.No of pages: 15 -- 20 pages
