Ok I don't get it. Could you please be a little bit more specific than
"haha just RTFM".

The http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-encryption-req and
http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlenc-core/ state that there is symmetric
encryption algorithms support like AES.

Also your example applications like "encrypt2" use a password file which
needs a special length.

All other documents around state symmetric key encryption (e.g.
http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/s-xmlsec.html ). So the
standard definitely supports that. Maybe I'm running to the wrong
direction ;-)
