Child containers
When a user creates a task, one or more nodes spawn an algorithm container. These algorithm containers can create new tasks themselves.
Every algorithm is supplied with a JWT token. This token can be used to communicate with the vantage6-server. In case you use a algorithm wrapper, you simply can use the supplied Client in the case you use a central function.
A child container can be a parent container itself. There is no limit to the amount of task layers that can be created. It is common to have only a single parent container which handles many child containers.
Each container can spawn new containers in the network. Each container is provided with a unique token which they can use to communicate to the vantage6-server.
The token to which the containers have access is limited. The token can only be used to create a task in the same collaboration and using the same image.
