A Credit Default Swap (CDS) is a contract between two parties, a protection buyer who makes fixed periodic payments, and a protection seller, who collects the premium in exchange for making the protection buyer whole in case of default. iBoxx uses CDS to indicate that the underlying reference entities and obligations are senior unsecured bonds, issued by corporate or sovereign issuers.
