Announcement at Microsoft Ignite
Azure Active Directory Verifiable Credentials is in public preview effective April 2021, and Microsoft is also announcing partnerships with several identify verification providers including Onfido. Verifiable credentials capability in Azure AD enables organizations to issue digital claims about identity attributes based on open standards. Individuals can manage credentials in the Microsoft Authenticator app, and developers will be able to request and verify credentials via an application SDK.
The future of identity is bright
What is identity verification with Azure AD & Onfido? It is an open standards approach to verifying information about a business or a user while protecting privacy. Once verified, these credentials can be used to prove an identity across different organizations to accelerate onboarding of users, secure access to apps or enable a more trustworthy credential recovery experience.
Verifiable credentials let organizations confirm information about someone—like their education and professional certifications—without collecting and storing their personal data. This will revolutionize the way we grant permissions to access our information. Because the digital information is verified by a known party, it’s more trustworthy, and verification will only take minutes instead of days or weeks.
