    (Note: This module has only been tested on Ubuntu 20.04 and will probably not work on non-Linux platforms. Please report any issues.)

    This module is only compatible with Node.js >=12.11.0.

    For Linux x86_64, binaries may be available, in which case you will not need to install any other system dependencies, so skip to doing npm install liboqs-node.

    You will first need to install the liboqs dependencies. Follow the instructions for your OS.

    Additionally, you should have OpenSSL >=v1.1.1.

    In case you do not already have git installed, it will also be required.

    Then, install the module as usual: npm install liboqs-node.

    There are currently no prebuilt binaries for non-Linux operating systems.
