Environment requirements for the Waves Enterprise blockchain platform

Important

Waves Enterprise platform is distributed as a Docker image, so there is no need to install any software other than Docker and Docker-compose and to configure the environment. With Docker you can deploy a Docker container from a Docker image which already contains Java, CryptoPro and other necessary software.

However, you must purchase the licenses for the proprietary software from its manufacturer and then transfer the licenses to the node via the environment variables as described below in the Installing CryptoPro CSP license section.

The open-source components do not require license keys to be obtained and passed to the node.

Following are the environment requirements for the Waves Enterprise blockchain platform:

Installing CryptoPro CSP license

After you have obtained a CryptoPro CSP license, locate the /configs/node/node.env env file on the node, and set the environment variables to the values specified in the license:

CSP_LICENSE={{ CSP_LICENSE }}
JCSP_LICENSE={{ JCSP_LICENSE }}
COMPANY_NAME={{ COMPANY_NAME }}

where

  • CSP_LICENSE – CSP license key,

  • JCSP_LICENSE – JCSP license key,

  • COMPANY_NAME – company name as specified in the JCSP license.
