    gVisor by Google is a userspace application kernel written in Go. Userspace kernel is a software that runs completely in user-mode and has less privilege (since it runs in user-mode). It also acts as a kernel emulation layer, that means, it can act as a fake kernel and can receive and process system-calls, thus hiding the host kernel. gVisor is compatible with OCI and provides a OCI runtime called runsc that can be used by container management tool like docker as the underlying runtime. (docker uses runc as the default runtime).
