Permission Denied for SO_DEBUG socket option inside docker

I’ve isolated the Permission Denied exception being thrown inside one of my test case to these lines –

...
ASSERT_EQ(0, getsockopt(s.getSocket(), SOL_SOCKET, SO_DEBUG, &optval, &optlen));
...
...
ASSERT_EQ(0, setsockopt(s.getSocket(), SOL_SOCKET, SO_DEBUG, &optval, optlen));
...

These work fine while running test executable with sudo on my local machine eg. sudo ./test/testexe and all test pass, no exception is thrown. To run these without sudo, I’ve tried setting capabilities prior to executing tests eg. sudo setcap "cap_net_admin+ep cap_net_raw+ep" test/testexe which again runs fine without sudo this time on my local machine.

  • Kubernetes on CoreOS: Proxy service max out CPU
  • Externalize application.properties to docker env
  • Brew install docker does not include docker engine?
  • Docker run without setting WORKDIR doesn't work
  • docker-compose images volumes
  • running tcpreplay with docker and boot2docker
  • The problem arises with docker where none of the methods work – neither sudo helps and exception is still thrown nor does the setcap method which successfully sets the capabilities but an error Operation not permitted is shown when executing tests.

    So is there any other way of running SO_DEBUG lines successfully but without running docker with elevated privileges since I get control only inside the docker container with my CI platform.
