Hi All
About the second questoion i am not very sure what the answer is like but
the answer to the first question according to my understanding is that the
sender will only include its own specified NameIdentifier for the principal
to the receiver that is during the maintaining of user mapping each of the
sender and receiver would have decided on NameIdentifier for a principal at
the IDP and the SP end .This NameIdentifier will be included in the Logout
