It is strongly encouraged to run KMS via Docker mode. KMS can run in any operating system supported by Docker. Docker mode reference.

Install considerations

To meet the highest security standards, KMS should be installed in a deny-from-all environment. It installs a set of CLI tools and commands to generate and store wallets / private keys securely.

KMS is shipped as a Node.JS binary, and Node.JS 14+ should be installed on your server. NodeJS >=14 and npm@6 is required. Best scenario under NodeJS 16
