Microsoft Entra Verified ID

Decentralized identity services and verifiable credentials

Verifiable credentials are identity attestations, such as proof of a workplace or student ID, official memberships, or other attributes from a trusted authority. WhoIAM can help you design and implement secure and scalable Verified ID solutions that empower your users to obtain and manage their verified credentials.

Let’s Talk

Microsoft Entra Verified ID  (previously known as Verifiable Credentials) is an enterprise-grade decentralized identity service built on blockchain technology based on open standards. Microsoft Entra Verified ID lets you issue and verify workplace credentials, education status, certifications, or any unique identity attributes in a global ecosystem designed for secure interaction between people, organizations, and things. Crucially, Verified ID enables everyone to own and control their own identity and choose when and whether to provide or revoke access to businesses or services they interact with.

What are verifiable credentials?

Verifiable credentials are a set of claims made by an organization or entity called the ‘issuer’ attesting information about a person.

For example, this could be a university (issuer) attesting to the fact that a person (the subject) is a currently enrolled student (claim).  The issuer creates a digital signature as proof that they attest to this information. This signature is a verifiable credential and can be stored in a digital wallet on the person’s mobile device that they can choose to share with other establishments that require proof (Verifier) that the person is indeed a student enrolled at the university.


Verified ID empowers you to confidently issue and verify workplace credentials, education status, certifications, or any unique identity attributes. Here is how.

  • Create and issue Verified IDs
  • Verify credentials
  • Suspend or invalidate credentials
