This is a final reminder for the CME SFTP enhancements scheduled for Saturday, May 9th. This advisory supersedes previously published advisories # 15-87 and 15-105 dated March 25th and April 13th respectively.
CME plans to install a software update to CME Secure SFTP on Saturday May 9, 2015. With this enhancement, CME will no longer support “Open SSH public key format” that is currently used by some of clearing firms to connect to CME SFTP. Instead CME will now support “SSH Public Key File Format (RFC4716)” effective May 9, 2015.
To help SFTP customers with this enhancement, CME will conduct a final testing in production on Saturday, May 9th. Please note: all firms that utilize public key to access CME SFTP are required to participate in Production testing on May 9th. If you do not participate in this testing, you will risk your firms’ ability to access CME SFTP following the upgrade.
For more information please contact CME Clearing at (312) 207-2525.
