Together, the two elements create a hash that can be claimed by third-party services.

A verifier, which would independently generate the MicroID, would then visit the page to see if the generated MicroID is the same as the MicroID on the page. If they are the same, a claim exists. MicroID is based on a communication URI. Since both the MicroID provider and verifier can
