FIX client LOGON detection
Info Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6740
SynopsisThe remote host is running the Financial Information eXchange (FIX) protocol.
DescriptionThe remote client is running a Financial Information eXchange (FIX) application. This protocol is used by financial institutions to exchange data. The FIX protocol has very few built-in security controls and, instead, relies on industry standard encryption (PGP, SSL/TLS, etc.) to protect the stream. The NNM has just observed this client initiate a LOGON request without encryption set.
SolutionEnsure that FIX data is encrypted when passed over untrusted networks.
