Podman Overview

Run Podman containers instead of Docker for operating systems such as RHEL v8 and CentOS v8 and higher. Cortex XSOAR
Cortex XSOAR supports both Docker and Podman as the container management tool. Podman is a daemonless container engine for developing, managing, and running OCI Containers on the Linux System. Containers can either be run as root or in rootless mode.
When installing a server or engine, Cortex XSOAR automatically detects the container management type based on the operating system. For example, if your operating system is running RHEL v8 and higher or CentOS v8 and higher, Cortex XSOAR installs Podman packages and configures the operating system to enable Podman in rootless mode.
When upgrading a server or engine, the server or engine keeps the previously used container management type (regardless of distribution version). To migrate an existing server or engine to Podman, see Migrate From Docker to Podman.
By default, Podman uses the
$HOME/.local/share/containers/storage
directory. To use a different directory for container storage, edit the key:
rootless_storage_path
in the Podman config file
storage.conf
. For example,
rootless_storage_path=/var/lib/containers/$USER/storage
.
If using PowerShell integrations, you may need to configure the default SELinux policy as Podman can affect processes which
mmap
to
/dev/zero
.
Docker hardening guidelines can be applied to Podman, with the exception of Limit Available Memory, Limit Available CPU, and Limit PIDS.
