Teleport was intended to be a program that allowed a process in a container to transfer its execution context (user and group IDs, namespaces, open file descriptors, etc.) to a more or less privileged context, so that it could perform operations that would otherwise be limited to its own user namespace; the name "Teleport" comes from the metaphorical notion that the process would be "teleported" from one execution context to another.

Due to the possible security implications that would result from this, and given the fact that I have already written other programs like ctrtool and socketbox to perform similar tasks, this project was abandoned before I could write any code.
