Hello experts,
I want to know more about Microsoft U-Prove . What my manager is asking is to use U-Prove for encrypting data and make it less hackable.
Less help is available. Is anybody really using U-Prove?

U-Prove is not encryption but a digital credential technology that verifies a user without releasing all but a minimal amount of information.. i.e. proving you are over 18 but not disclosing your birthday.

There is the issuer that issues the token, the prover (the user that uses the token), a device that stores the token, and the verifier that uses information from the token/u-prove certificate.
