NAME

       newgidmap - set the gid mapping of a user namespace

SYNOPSIS

       newgidmap pid gid lowergid count [gid lowergid count [ ... ]]

DESCRIPTION

       The newgidmap sets /proc/[pid]/gid_map based on its command line arguments and the gids
       allowed in /etc/subgid. Note that the root user is not exempted from the requirement for a
       valid /etc/subgid entry.

       After the pid argument, newgidmap expects sets of 3 integers:

       gid
           Beginning of the range of GIDs inside the user namespace.

       lowergid
           Beginning of the range of GIDs outside the user namespace.

       count
           Length of the ranges (both inside and outside the user namespace).

       newgidmap verifies that the caller is the owner of the process indicated by pid and that
       for each of the above sets, each of the GIDs in the range [lowergid, lowergid+count] is
       allowed to the caller according to /etc/subgid before setting /proc/[pid]/gid_map.

       Note that newgidmap may be used only once for a given process.

       There currently are no options to the newgidmap command.
