In today’s digitally-driven world, identity has transcended physical forms and evolved into a complex web of digital information.
Ensuring the security, privacy, and usability of digital identities is paramount, prompting the development of innovative solutions.
Microsoft Entra Verified ID is a groundbreaking solution, poised to redefine how we manage and safeguard digital identities.
In this blog post, Richard Astley, our Lead Solutions Architect, will take a deep dive into the world of Microsoft Entra Verified ID, exploring its core components, capabilities, use cases, and the potential impact it may have on the future of digital identity.
Understanding Microsoft Entra Verified ID
Microsoft Entra Verified ID is a cutting-edge digital identity solution that has become a beacon of trust, security, and innovation. It represents a paradigm shift in how organisations and individuals interact with and secure their digital identities.
At its core, Entra Verified ID is built on principles of decentralised identity, verifiable credentials, and open standards.
Let’s dissect its key components and understand how they contribute to its transformative power:
- Decentralised Identifiers (DIDs): DIDs form the foundational layer of Entra Verified ID. These unique, globally resolvable identifiers are designed to put users in control of their identities. DIDs break free from centralised identity providers and allow individuals to independently create and manage their digital identities.
- Verifiable Credential Data Model: Entra Verified ID leverages the Verifiable Credential Data Model, a revolutionary concept that allows organisations to issue tamper-evident digital credentials. Credentials can represent anything from government-issued IDs to professional certifications. The beauty of verifiable credentials lies in their portability and trustworthiness, enabling secure information sharing in a way never seen before.
The Power of Microsoft Entra Verified ID
Entra Verified ID is not just a theoretical concept; it’s a real-world solution with tangible benefits across various domains:
Business Onboarding and Access Control
One of Entra Verified ID’s standout features is its ability to securely onboard employees, partners, and customers remotely. This eliminates cumbersome in-person identity verification processes and accelerates business operations.
Seamless Resource Access
Entra Verified ID ensures that individuals can access the resources they need with ease and security. This is particularly crucial in today’s distributed work environments, where remote access to critical systems is the norm.
Self-Service Identity Management
Empowering users to manage their identities through self-service capabilities reduces the administrative burden on organisations. It fosters a sense of ownership and control among users.
Interoperability and Trust
Using open standards in Entra Verified ID makes it highly interoperable. It enables organisations to navigate the intricate landscape of identity management without the complexity of managing federated relationships.
Benefits of Microsoft Entra Verified ID

In a world where user experience is paramount, Entra Verified ID shines. It offers individuals the convenience of self-service identity management while maintaining rigorous security standards.
Interoperability and Adaptability
The open standards at the heart of Entra Verified ID make it adaptable to various use cases and systems. Organisations can seamlessly integrate it into their existing infrastructure.
As data privacy regulations become more stringent, Entra Verified ID provides a robust framework for organisations to remain compliant while handling sensitive identity data.
