Description

Flatpak is a sandboxing system targeting Linux Desktop
applications. This talk will explain how flatpak uses varius linux
kernel and userspace features to implement sandboxing, and compare and
contrast to how it works with server-side container systems like
Docker.

It will also talk about future plans and ideas in this area,
including things that we can do with existing frameworks as well as
things that would require new kernel or userspace features.
