Download Binaries

You can download the client and server binaries on our Github releases page. No installer is available. You have to add the binary to the PATH in your environment yourself, for example by putting it into/usr/local/bin or something comparable.

Once installed, you should be able to run:

oathkeeper help

Building from source

If you wish to compile the binary yourself, you need to install and set up Go 1.17+ and add $GOPATH/bin to your $PATH.


Please note that this will check out the latest commit, which might be not yet released and unstable.

git clone
cd oathkeeper
go mod download
go install -tags sqlite,json1,hsm .
$(go env GOPATH)/bin/oathkeeper help
