comment Is it possible to register "virtual" user/group IDs in a Linux system?
@Gilles: in a sense, yes. The subordinate IDs are visible in the parent ns; and file ownership is accordingly. So it'd be nice if for the different sub-ID ranges, say 100000..165535 for a container foo I could somehow make sure that lookup of the UID 100000 yields foo-root. Of course I know I could create actual accounts in shadow which have login disabled (however PAM may still allow them in, e.g. for SSH with keys). With Samba it would be possible to get users from the AD without actually creating them in shadow. I'll amend my question.

An answer should contain a reference to authoritative documentation about such mechanism. I'll add a 50 or 100 rep reward for answers that provide a method that is purely script-driven (no compilation of code required).

comment Is it possible to limit the set of English locales on a system?
thanks a lot. That is a viable option (removal), I guess. As long as I can still use en_US.* via the other route.

thanks. The latter part is what I was trying to do. Modify those files, but it's not persistent. How can I make my change persist?

@JohnDoe: easier to get a full list with would be iptables-save (it prints the list of all rules, no worries, doesn't tinker with the rules like iptables-restore would)

@Oli: netfilter is a part of Linux, and it can be a module. ipfilter is not a part of Linux, because it lives outside the kernel - and Linux is just a kernel.

do you know of a way to ensure or see that a generated private key doesn't leave my machine in such a process?
