user-mode networking daemons for virtual machines and namespaces


passt implements a translation layer between a Layer-2 network interface and native Layer-4 sockets (TCP, UDP, ICMP/ICMPv6 echo) on a host. It doesn't require any capabilities or privileges, and it can be used as a simple replacement for Slirp.

pasta (same binary as passt, different command) offers equivalent functionality, for network namespaces: traffic is forwarded using a tap interface inside the namespace, without the need to create further interfaces on the host, hence not requiring any capabilities or privileges.
