By default, there is support for http://, ftp:// and file:// protocols. 
In addition to that
application may register handlers to support *any* other protocol or 
replace support
for any other protocol. Please note, that in most cases you would have 
to register
IO handlers in two places:
    - LibXML2 (these handlers are used for XML files);
    - XMLSec (these handlers are used for binary files)
The good news is that these handlers are the same and if you don't care 
about "special"
XML files processing (like gzipping on the fly) then you can use the 
same functions in
both places.

For more details, check include/xmlsec/io.h file and the following page:
