How to Install Docker on Kali Linux

Installing Docker Container on Kali Linux

We have a detailed article about Docker on Kali Linux. Here we are going to discuss in short how we can easily install docker container on our Kali Linux system.

Installing Docker on Kali Linux
To install Docker on Kali Linux we need to remember that there is already a package named “docker”, therefore Docker has to be installed under a different name. If we install docker we will not end up with the container version. The version we will be installing is named docker.io. All commands are the same however, so running docker on the command line will be the appropriate command.

First of all we need to update our system by using sudo apt update command. Then we need to use following command to install docker container on our Kali Linux system.

sudo apt install -y docker.io

After applying above command docker container will be installed on our system on some time, depending on our system performance and internet speed. After that we need to enable docker service by using following command:

sudo systemctl enable docker --now

Now docker is installed on our system. We can start using docker, with sudo. If we want to add our self to the docker group to use docker without sudo, an additional step is needed. We need to run following command:

sudo usermod -aG docker $USER

The final thing is to logout and in again. That's all we can use Docker now on our Kali Linux system.

Installing docker-ce on Kali Linux

docker-ce can be installed from Docker repository. One thing to bare in mind, Kali Linux is based on Debian, so we need to use Debian’s current stable version (even though Kali Linux is a rolling distribution). At the time of writing, its “buster”:

printf "%s\n" "deb [arch=amd64 signed-by=/usr/share/keyrings/docker-ce-archive-keyring.gpg] https://download.docker.com/linux/debian buster stable" \
  | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/docker-ce.list

After applying the above command we need update our sources by using following command:

sudo apt update

After the update is complete we can install the latest version of docker-ce by applying following command:

sudo apt install -y docker-ce docker-ce-cli containerd.io

After finishing the process we have the docker-ce on our Kali Linux system. This is how we can install Docker on our Kali Linux system.
