Technology of the Day : Workload Identity Federation

Hey Hacker,

Here's a cool tech that you should know about.
Workload identity federation allows you to configure an Azure AD app registration to trust tokens from an external identity provider (IdP), such as GitHub. Once that trust relationship is created, your software workload can exchange trusted tokens from the external IdP for access tokens from Microsoft identity platform. 

This opens up multi-cloud scenarios and the number of applications of such a feature are many.

Distributed Identity, Verifiable credentials? What is it?

Decentralized Identifers(DIDs) are unique identifiers that can be used to secure access to resources, sign and verify credentials, and facilitate application data exchange. Unlike traditional usernames and email addresses, DIDs are owned and controlled by the entity itself (be it a person, device, or company). DIDs exist independently of any external organization or trusted intermediary.
