New service for storage of class 3 information

News: Jun 08, 2021

The service Secure storage is now launched. Secure storage is a service for storing data with a high protection value (information class 3), ie data that may not be stored in any of the university's other storage areas or tools.

To use the service, secure login via MFA (Multi Factor Authentication) is required. This means that as a user, you need to verify yourself both via your x account and via your mobile phone to log in. When logging in, Freja eID PLUS is the service used in the first hand with Microsoft Authenticator as the second option.

Inside the secure storage area, you can do basic editing of files in Word, Excel and other Office programs via Office Online. For more extensive work, you need to download the files to your computer. When you have finished working on the data you need to upload it to the storage area again and make sure no data is left on the computer in the form of temp files etc.

Secure storage can be used individually or within a group, but is currently only available for individuals with an x account at the University of Gothenburg. The service is available for Windows and Mac.

The data is stored in Citrix Sharefile which is located in the server halls of the university.

You order a storage area in Secure storage via a form. More information about the service and a link to the form is found under Tools:

Secure storage

The Secure storage service has been developed within a project. The project has also included working with recommendations for the continued development of a secure IT environment in the form of secure clients, secure work processes and secure handling of class 3 data. This work has now been paused to be synchronized with other initiatives within the university. This is to ensure that further developments corresponds to what is needed.
