Publisher Verification

Overview

Azure AD publisher verification demonstrates the publisher of an application has verified their identity as a Microsoft Partner Network member and is the authentic publisher. This helps to prevent confusion when malicious actors publish similar sounding applications in the directory.

Publisher verification is primarily targeted at developers publishing multi-tenant applications and can indicate a trusted developer.

User consent policies can be set to require verified publishers and reduce the risk of malicious applications requesting access to organisation data - also known as consent phishing.

Outcomes

  • Reduced risk as you can understand which applications in use are by verified developers
  • Restrict consent requests to applications from verified publishers
