Check your IdP's audit log entry for the authentication.  One of the 
fields contains which attributes were released.  Looks like you should 
see some sort of persistent ID in the list already.  If you don't see 
givenName in the list, since your attribute-filter excerpt looks 
correct, I'd verify that your DataConnector is correctly configured and 
has sufficient privileges to retrieve the givenName attribute from your 
LDAP directory.  If you turn up the AttributeResolver logging to DEBUG, 
you should be able to see whether Shib was able to retrieve the value of 
that attribute.
