Federation Single Sign-On

Enhance your sign-in experience 

CME Group Federation Single Sign-On improves the user experience and delivers security improvements for our customers. The capability eliminates the need for users to remember multiple passwords across different applications and empowers organizations to retain more control over user access management.

Key Benefits

Enhanced Security

The user's password stays within the customer’s infrastructure and is never shared with CME Group.

Enhanced User Experience

Eliminates the need for users to remember multiple passwords and provides a seamless user experience.

Reduced Operational Overheads

Since Federation streamlines user provisioning, the time spent by users on setting up an account is now reduced.

Customer Control

Customers now have better control over what conditions their users get access to on CME Group systems. For example, customer security teams can choose to enforce IP address checking as a prerequisite to logging into a CME Group application.

High-volume futures broker Advantage Futures became the first firm to successfully launch CME Group’s Federation initiative in the production environment. This initiative enhances cyber security for all participants.

Advantage CTO Tom Guinan commented, “Advantage is committed to working with the CME and the entire futures industry on new technology initiatives and CME Group Federation allows Advantage to better manage its users' credentials into CME applications. As a result, when Advantage users leave their organization, web access to CME applications are denied as soon as the user is disabled in Advantage’s directory.”

CME Group Senior Managing Director & President CME Clearing Suzanne Sprague stated, “Enhanced security, user experience and reduced operational overhead are all benefits to firms who choose to utilize CME Group’s Federation capability and CME Group looks forward to eventually enabling its Federation solution to all CME Clearing firms.”

Getting Started

Firms that federate with CME Group are required to support an identity provided (IdP) infrastructure capable of SAML 2.0 or OpenID Connect.
