U-Prove Microsoft encryption

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?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

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.
