F7 Trading System
08 Feb 2023

Eurex Repo F7, Production, renewal of broker/server certificates, IMPORTANT, action required !

The following change only affects API/POA applications. The usage of the F7 Trader GUI and the FIX interface is not affected by this change.

On Saturday, February 25th, 2023 Eurex Repo will install new broker/server certificates in the F7 Production environment, as the current Eurex Repo F7 API broker/server certificates for Production will expire.

These new broker/server certificates for Eurex Repo F7 API will be installed in Production on the early morning of Saturday, February 25th, 2023.

F7 API client applications connecting to F7 Production will need to add these new broker/server certificates to their truststores to be able to connect to Production after February 25th, 2023.

After the change of the broker/server certificates Eurex Repo will offer a connection test window on Saturday,  February 25th, 2023, between 10:00 am and noon CEST. Customer Technical Support is available during these two hours and customers can reach their TKAM via the VIP number or  +49 (0) 69 2 11-1 08 88, per email: cts@deutsche-boerse.com

The procedure to download and install the new certificates follows the same steps already done in January 2023 in Simulation and in Advanced Simulation.

Please download the new broker/server certificates for production for the Eurex Repo Member Section by following this path:

https://membersection.deutsche-boerse.com  > Resources > Eurex Repo > System Documentation > Access and Certificates

  • F7_BrokerCertsProd_20230225.zip - “Production F7 API broker/server certificates for Internet and leased line to import into your truststore, as of  February 25th, 2023”

These new certificates, once extracted from the ZIP file, can be added to your existing truststore (using a new alias) for example by using commands like the ones outlined below:

keytool –import –file prod-f7-api_eurexrepo_com_cert.crt –keystore <PATH TO YOUR TRUSTSTORE> -alias f7apiserver2023prod

keytool –import –file prod-f7-api_vpn_eurexrepo_com_cert.crt –keystore <PATH TO YOUR TRUSTSTORE> -alias f7apivpnserver2023prod

See chapter 6.1.3 of the document “Eurex Repo F7 Connectivity Guide” (can be downloaded from the same location) for general details on handling broker/server certificates in F7 API.

The new broker/server certificates can be downloaded and added alongside existing certificates in existing truststores at any convenient point in time prior to Saturday February 25th, 2023.

Failure to download and install these new certificates will prevent API/POA applications from connecting to Eurex Repo’s F7 Production environment after Saturday February 25th, 2023.
