This section describes how to install and configure a Federated Privacy Exchange (FPX) Authorization Server. These instructions will support various types of deployments including both development/staging (i.e. internal) environments as well as full production deployments. This document should be read by anyone responsible for the deployment of an FPX environment as well as those wishing to understand its high level infrastructure architecture.

This guide includes a number of assumptions, including that the reader is familiar with Kubernetes and its core concepts such as deployments, pods, services, ingress as well as common packaging tools such as Helm charts. These concepts will be crucial in an understanding of the installation steps as well as post-install maintenance and monitoring.
