Hive

Hive is SMHI's service for cooperation between SMHI and external parties.

Hive is SMHIs service for sharing information with external parties. Most projects result in a variety of documents, images and other files. Being able to structure all files in a secure and easily accessible way can be crucial for the entire project. With the Hive document management system, project members can access important files - anywhere, anytime.
Hive is for external projects: where members can share information during the project. Thereafter, the information must be taken care of according to its special needs.

External users

The service uses so-called two-factor authentication (2FA), which meets the strong security requirements SMHI has set for access to information stored in Hive.

2FA requires the user to confirm the login twice, such as login credentials in combination with an OTP (one-time password) generated by a smartphone app or a browser plugin.

As an External user, you need to have an authentication application installed in your phone or browser before you start activating your Hive account.

For mobile devices:

  • Google Authenticator
  • FreeOTP

The applications are installed through Google Play or iOS App store.

For web browsers, the plugin authenticator.cc/ is supported.
