Dear Sirs, my name is Gianluca from Italy
 I'm trying to calculate the Digest value of a SAML Authentication
STatement whith the SHA-1 algorithm. Let us suppose that we are dealing
with a string representing the following node:


When I try to calculate SHA-1 with the function  b64_sha1(str2Digest)  what
exactly should the string str2Digest contain? I mean it should be equal to
or only "GIANLUCA" or ....what else?
