Access Attributes from ColdFusion 10 on IIS 7.5

I have Shibboleth SP installed on a Windows 2008 Server, running on
IIS 7.5 and ColdFusion 10.

I have tested the install with TestShib, I'm able to login in to TestShib,
and when I check the Session attributes, it shows the default attributes
with the count.

I'm now trying to access those attributes from a simple ColdFusion test
page. But I can't seem to see the attribute values. I'm not sure if they are
being passed to IIS Request Header or even if there is a value for them. I'm
assuming that since I'm using TestShib, they would passed values for the

I do see ShibSpoofCheck and can read that in my ColdFusion test page. I've
read about the issue with IIS and having to add the prefix "HTTP_" to the
attribute names, which I have done too. I'm probably missing something
simple, but I'm not sure what it is at this point.

I did find this post interesting, although we do not have ColdFusion
installed on Apache.

And help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
