1. Why do you want this?

2. The Shib IDP should already put the name (entityID) of the SP into
the AuthnStatement, as part of the AudienceRestriction element:

If you want to put the entityID into an attribute it will not be part
of the AuthnStatement, which is what you asked about above. It would
then bean the CDATA content of an AttributeValue element as part of
an AttributeStatement.

Ignoring that, a Script-type attribute definition has accesst to the
relevant contexts and if you really wanted you could create a custom
attribute with the entityID value of the current relying party into.
The specifics depend on the IDP version, among others.
