Installation from Sources¶
Clone the project from Github:
$ git clone https://github.com/eProsima/Fast-RTPS $ mkdir Fast-RTPS/build && cd Fast-RTPS/build
If you are on Linux, execute:
$ cmake -DTHIRDPARTY=ON .. $ make $ sudo make install
If you are on Windows, choose your version of Visual Studio using CMake option -G:

By default, Fast RTPS doesn’t compile security support. You can activate it adding
-DSECURITY=ON at CMake
More information about security on Fast RTPS, see Security.
When security is activated on compilation Fast RTPS builds several built-in security plugins. Some of them have the dependency of OpenSSL library.
