I am also having issues with the AudienceRestriction and have read through
this thread (
http://shibboleth.net/pipermail/users/2012-September/005975.html)  and and
still having issues.

Apache Config
<VirtualHost *:443>
 ServerName myserver.com
 ProxyRequests Off
 UseCanonicalName On
 UseCanonicalPhysicalPort On
 SSLEngine on
 SSLProtocol ALL -SSLv2
 SSLCertificateFile /etc/pki/tls/certs/myserver.crt
 SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/pki/tls/private/myserver.key
 ShibCompatValidUser On

   Alias /shibboleth-sp/main.css /usr/share/shibboleth/main.css

    Require shib-session

    ShibRequestSetting applicationId default
    Require valid-user

Changed sections of shibboleth.xml
 <ApplicationDefaults entityID="https://myserver.com/"
                         REMOTE_USER="eppn persistent-id targeted-id">
 <SSO entityID="http://www.okta.com/oktaid123454">
              SAML2 SAML1

Okta Side
SSO URL: https://myserver.com/Shibboleth.sso/SAML2/POST
Audience URI: https://myserver.com/

Everytime I access myserver.com I get redirected to the idP (Okta) auth
happens correctly and redirects me to the SSO URL at which point the SP
errors with

opensaml::FatalProfileException at (

Assertion contains an unacceptable AudienceRestriction.

and the native.log contains

2015-08-13 09:08:51 ERROR Shibboleth.Listener [28218] shib_check_user:
remoted message returned an error: Assertion contains an unacceptable

2015-08-13 09:08:51 ERROR Shibboleth.Apache [28218] shib_check_user:
Assertion contains an unacceptable AudienceRestriction.
Any advice on where I messed this up / how to fix?
