[xmlsec] X509Data sub-element detail ?

As always, thanks for the quick reply.

I'm using Igor's Windows binaries which I believe were and still are at 1.04

Yes the p12 has a cert in it. I can otherwise sign and validate documents
signed with it.

As I mentioned the X509 gets populated O.K. in the first template below, I'd
just like to get the other details in.

If you are tuning in Igor, is there any chance you will be recompiling the
Windows binaries for 1.1.0 any time soon ?

Thanks in advance,

The second template should work if you are using xmlsec-openssl 1.1.0 or
xmlsec-nss from CVS trunk. If you have correct version and it does not work
then it's probably a bug somewhere. I would appreciate if you can file a bug
report and provide as much details as possible (xmlsec version + crypto, os,
templates you are using,
pkcs12 file if possible).

This has nothing to do with it. "--trusted-*" options tells xmlsec which
certs are trusted when it verifies signature. XMLSec gets certificates from
the key. In you case, from PKCS12 file.
BTW, do you have a cert in this file?

This goes outside the scope of XMLDSig specification [1]. All this
information is available inside the cert itself and you can include full
certificate using <X509Certificate/> node.
