FIX-over-TLS (FIXS) is the standard to secure FIX sessions using the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. The use of FIXS is considered a requirement as it introduces a basic level of security and standard options for interoperability.

Discussion on Cybersecurity  and FIXS can be found in our forums under General Q&A using the tag cybersecurity.

More information on the work from the FIXS Working Group can be found here.
