[security-dev] lookupIdentityById requires preconfigured Tiers

I have contributors blocked on me waiting to get a first iteration of 
the backend of my new project.   I don't need a release, just something 
usable on the JPA side of things.   If anything is usable, I can start 
banging on it and help fix bugs or at least identify problems.

Otherwise, I'll continue improving my git fork of Picketlink to support 
my work.  In the least it will allow me to further learn the current 
(albeit obsolete) Picketlink code and help flush out and find more use
