I am having problems with a Shibboleth 2.0 IdP . I can login and authenticate myself from my SP (OLAT), but the Attribute Authority cannot deliver the found attributes to my SP.
Seems to be something with certificates:
 Inbound message issuer was not authenticated.
15:06:13.849 ERROR [edu.internet2.middleware.shibboleth.idp.profile.saml1.AttributeQueryProfileHandler:175] - Message did not meet security requirements Inbound message issuer was not authenticated.

That error is mentioned here, if you want some troubleshooting ideas:

You should see some errors earlier in the process log for ClientCertAuthRule, that will give you more info.

I made a self-signed certificate for my SP and included it in the referenced metafile in the 
"<AttributeAuthorityDescriptor protocolSupportEnumeration="urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:1.1:protocol">"

where do I need to add the public Key on the IdP-side? The "extkeytool" is not any more available in 2.0, how to do it?

First you want to make sure that the cert is making it through to the IdP, double-check your AA endpoint SSL/TLS config.

If that's not it, then it is a trust issue as you surmise.  The way that you indicate the SP's cert/public key to the IdP is by including it in the IdP's copy of the SP's metadata, so double-check that as well.

Again, log information from when the ClientCertAuth rule is running will tell you more specifically why it is failing to authenticate the SP's client cert.
