Subject: Re: [security-services] Conformance with identifiers/affiliations (long)

Right. What's required is that SPs can participate in the conformance 
test for NameID Mapping (along with an IDP and one other SP).

 From an SCR point of view, this really just means that SPs need to 
support encrypted name identifiers.

 From a test harness point of view, it means that SPs need some way to 
accept the name identifier (or encrypted name identifier) returned from 
a name identifier mapping operation and verify that it means something 
to them. In Liberty ID-FF 1.2 conformance testing, the name identifier 
mapping test involves three entities: SP1, SP2 and IDP. It is assumed 
that SP1 and SP2 are from the same vendor and that the vendor's test 
harness is set up to convey the result of a name identifier mapping 
request issued by SP1 to IDP (with a target of SP2) to SP2 for this 
verification step.
