[xmlsec] Verifing signature of SAML XML artifacts that has an ID attribute in it, but I think I should ignore it

Hello Aleksey,

AS> The following xmlsec utility command gets the reference correctly
AS> though the signature verification fails since I don't have correct
AS> keys:

AS> $xmlsec1 --verify \
AS>           --store-references \
AS>           --id-attr:ID
AS> urn:oasis:names:tc:SAML:2.0:assertion:Assertion \
AS>           artifact.xml

AS> Take a look at the xmlsec utility source code under debugger
AS> and do the same in your program.

Excellent. Thank you very much!
