You may get the "gyp ERR! stack Error: EACCES: permission denied" error, when using older version of "npm" to install Hyplerledger Composer REST API server:

$ sudo npm install -g composer-rest-server@0.20

...
gyp ERR! configure error
gyp ERR! stack Error: EACCES: permission denied, mkdir 
  '/usr/local/lib/node_modules/composer-rest-server/node_modules/pkcs11js/.node-gyp'
gyp ERR! System Linux 4.15.0-1037-azure
gyp ERR! command "/usr/bin/node"

gyp ERR! cwd /usr/local/lib/node_modules/composer-rest-server/node_modules/pkcs11js

What you can do is to try it again with the "--unsafe-perm=true" option:

$ sudo npm install -g composer-rest-server --unsafe-perm=true
