To get started with the VU Identity Card, ensure the following prerequisites are met:
A tenant configured for Entra Verified ID service.
- If you don't have an existing tenant, you can create an Azure account for free.
The tenant must complete the VU Identity Card onboarding process.
- To create an account, contact VU Security.
Before you proceed, you must have received the URL from VU Security for users to be issued Verified IDs. If you have not yet received it, follow up with VU Security before you attempt following the steps documented in this article.
VU Identity Card works as a link between users who need to access an application and applications that require secure access control, regardless of how users access the system.
Verifiable credentials can be used to enable faster and easier user onboarding by replacing some human interactions. For example, a user or employee who wants to create or remotely access an account can use a Verified ID through VU Identity Card to verify their identity without using vulnerable or overly complex passwords or the requirement to be on-site.
