I am unable to derefence URI, when URI is not the 'same-document " uri reference. For eg. if give URI=http://www.google.com/index.html or even URI="some xml document online" , the program hangs.
I also tried the xmlsec1 command utility and got the same result. does the library not support dereferencing a document by http scheme ( as required by the spec).
Following is the simple template file I passed to the command line utility.
Copied from the example given, with some minor changes. the signature becomes a detached signature (right??)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><!-- XML Security Library example: Simple signature template file for sign1 example. --><Envelope xmlns="urn:envelope">  <Data>	Hello, World!  </Data>  <Signature xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#">    <SignedInfo>      <CanonicalizationMethod Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xml-c14n-20010315" />      <SignatureMethod Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#rsa-sha1" />      <Reference URI=http://www.google.com/index.html>        <DigestMethod Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#sha1" />        <DigestValue></DigestValue>      </Reference>    </SignedInfo>    <SignatureValue/>    <KeyInfo>	<KeyName/>    </KeyInfo>  </Signature></Envelope>
