what is server identifier ?

From wikipedia link:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Central_Authentication_Service

If the authentication succeeds, CAS returns the client to the application, passing along a security ticket. The application then validates the ticket by contacting CAS over a secure connection and providing its own service identifier and the ticket. CAS then gives the application trusted information about whether a particular user has successfully authenticated.

It depends on the specific application.  For example if the CAS in question was Facebook the "service identifier" could be your Facebook application id.

You get this id by creating a Facebook application on their site and they create an id that you would use in your requests.

That id identifies (in this case your application) to the CAS, so it knows who the application is that is requesting access to the user's information.
