Got it. My brain was fried when I sent that note.

I am not sure I understand what are you trying to do. "Trusted" and 
"untrusted" certificates
are used for signature verification, not for signing (hint: you have to 
have private key for 
signature, certificate has only public key). I think you should look at 
"--privkey-*" options.

No matter what I try, I can't seem to get xmlsec.exe to sign a template 
with my untrusted-der certificate. I consistently get error messages about 
the object not being found. 

xmlsec - -sign - -untrusted-der julie.cer test.xml 

 I've been able to use the library to validate signatures created with 
this key. 
Admittedly, I'm not exactly sure what to put in a template when using an 
untrusted-der. I've tried all sorts of combinations, and none of them seem 
to work.
