This looks like Shibboleth so the first thing you should do is review
the following wiki page:

Some additional comments:

1) There's no need to modify the backingFile, you can leave that as-is.

2) Configure the preview aggregate for test and dev deployments only.
Use the production aggregate for production deployments.

3) Since this is Shibboleth, you don't have to configure a new signing
certificate but we recommend you do this at the same time. See the
above wiki page for instructions.
