Hello Aleksey,
I wanted to encrypt portions of my xml document using
assymetric encryption and detached encrypted key. I
followed the encryption spec, eg. given in section

I was abe to encrypt with detached key, without any
problems. But decryption had problems.
I understand the problem, it is like Xpointer
 of URI attribute in RetreivalMethod fails because the
ID attribute of Encrypted Key is still not registered
with the libxml2.

I know that xmlsec registers these ID attributes only
reading the Encrypted key or Encrypted Data elements.

If I read the encrypted key first then, in the data 
reference URI shall fail.( i have not tried this
approach though)

Can you please tell me how to decrypt using detached
