The xmlSecKeyInfoCtx is used to store all context information related to 
the key search.
This includes private xmlsec data as well as application specific data. 
For example,
an application that uses database for storing key might want to put 
database session
handle in the xmlSecKeyInfoCtx if it uses multiple connections to 
database for each
thread. All key requirements (key name, public or private, key size, 
etc.) are in the
xmlSecKeyReq object. I am not sure I understand what do you mean by "the 
has a keyname".
