CME Globex API Secure Logon – iLink and Drop Copy

 

CME Group launched the CME Globex API Secure Logon in Q1 2018 to implement secure authentication for iLink and Drop Copy sessions on Convenience Gateway (CGW) and Market Segment Gateway (MSGW).

https://www.cmegroup.com/confluence/display/EPICSANDBOX/CME+Globex+API+Secure+Logon

The CME Secure Logon has been live in production for iLink since 21st January 2018, and for DropCopy since 7th January 2018. Secure Logon for both services becomes mandatory as of 1st July 2018, with financial surcharges being applied for using the prior plain text password authentication from 29th April 2018.

The new logon procedure secures the client system logon with validation of keyed-hash message authentication code (HMAC) credentials issued and validated by CME Group. When CME Globex receives the logon message, it uses the identical inputs to calculate the HMAC value to validate against the logon request. If the values do not match then CME Globex rejects the logon request.

OnixS software implementation updates to support CME Globex API Secure Logon completed the CME Globex API Secure Logon certification tests and were available from the following released versions:

CME DropCopy:

  • C++ V5.1.0.0 21st Nov 2017
  • .NET V4.4.0.0 26th Oct 2017
  • Java V4.3.0 26th Oct 2017

 

CME iLink FIX Order Entry:

CME Secure Logon is a technically simple change as it requires the addition of several specific tags to the FIX Logon message and is supported by all versions of OnixS FIX Engine implementations. We have updated the OnixS CME Trading Client reference implementation samples for all platforms to help our customers to implement the CME Secure Logon procedure. These reference implementation sample updates are available from the following versions:

  • C++ - from CME iLink FIX Order Entry sample version 1.6.0.0
  • .NET - CME iLink FIX Order Entry sample version 1.15.1.0
  • Java - CME iLink FIX Order Entry sample version 1.1.0

Press Release: OnixS Cboe Futures Exchange DMA solutions certified and ready for CFE migration to Bats technology platform 

London: 22nd February 2018 Onix Solutions Limited (OnixS) today announced that the OnixS Cboe Futures Exchange (CFE) Direct Market Access handler solutions are formally certificated for use and are ready for the planned migration of CFE onto the Bats technology platform on February 25.

OnixS directConnect: CFE Multicast PITCH Market Data Handler, Binary Order Entry (BOE) and FIX Order Entry and FIX Drop Copy updates for the new CFE platform on Bats technology stack are part of the OnixS service level commitment to maintain our direct market access solutions for such Exchange updates.

“The access to our exchange APIs provided by 3rd party Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) are a key benefit to our market participants,” said Chris Issacson, Cboe Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer. “We are pleased to be working with OnixS to support our mutual customers in preparation for CFE’s migration to the Bats technology platform.  These efforts are vital to a successful and seamless migration.”

Looking for a C++ FIX Engine? Need the lowest latency?

Seeing multiple claims to provide the fastest, best performing, lowest latency?

Others claim all of the above but they can't all be true.

All OnixS FIX Engine implementations include benchmark samples with associated source code. We take the view that the only performance metrics that matter are those you see within your own target context. So we make it easy for you to run those benchmarks out-of-the box, with source code so you can see what is happening, and adapt it to your own context as needed.
