Fast API Launch

Published on Jan 5, 2023Updated on Jan 8, 20242 min read

OKX Broker has launched the Fast API function to provide additional security to the API Key binding process. As a user connecting to trade with OKX on our brokers' platform, Fast API allows users to log in through OAuth mode and authorize the access token to generate API Keys automatically on behalf of the user.

Benefits

  1. Swift and safe: Users no longer need to copy their OKX API Key and API Secret manually, just log in to the OKX account and connect to the preferred broker.

  2. Secure IP whitelist for supported brokers: The automatically generated API Key will only have users' connected Broker's IP addresses whitelisted. In unfortunate circumstances where the API Key gets hacked on the Broker's side, the hacker cannot easily exploit the users' API Key since OKX only accepts requests coming from Broker's whitelisted servers.

Broker: How to enable the Fast API function?

  1. Apply for OAuth Brokers do apply for a Third Party App IP Whitelist first

  2. In the OAuth Broker application, provide the following:

  • Third Party Servers IP Whitelist
  • Redirect URL
  • Logo

  1. After your application is successful, you will receive an email with client_id and client_secret. Please keep this information safe and do not show it to others.
