Dear Aleksey,

when I define the xpath as a /../../ standard, what tag is it be looking for
in order to work properly?

Best regards

Never mind. Sorry, I did not read your message carefully :( I have tried
your file
and it did not work for openssl (returned error) and crashed nss which
is worse
than the file we had before :)

Anyway, I did the same conversion myself. The new file seems to be working
fine on Linux (openssl/nss). And I could not test it on Windows because
I start
getting "Keyset does not exist" error for every "CryptoAquireContext" call.
No idea why did this happen at all or when it'll be back to normal.

I have attached the file (gzipped). Can you try it with xmlsec-mscrypto,
