Data Breaches! Stolen Passwords! Aren't you scared of identity theft? Wouldn't it be cool to manage your own identity and data without relying on external authorities? Be it a school admission, an application for a new job, buying a new house, booking travel tickets, or something as simple as buying alcohol, all you need is your decentralized identity and the ability to provide limited claims to the business your are transacting with.

We are working to make this a reality by actively participating in the decentralized identity community and by building privacy respecting technology that users can trust. We are the Decentralized Identity team at Microsoft, and we are building a team of engineering collaborators to join us on our journey.
