No idea about docker courses...  Closest I come is kernel audit subsystem
modifications to enable the audit daemon to be run in a container without
compromising the audit daemon running in the initial namespaces.  This needs to
be well understood and carefully coded to ensure complete isolation between
containers, some of which could be running an entire userspace distro sharing a
kernel with other distros.
