  You don't.

  Both inner and outer identities are supplied by the user who is authenticating.  You can't (or at least shouldn't) edit them on the server.

  The warning is there to indicate that the client MAY be misconfigured.  The solution is to fix the client, or failing that, ignore the warning.
