I believe it only supports RSA/DSA keys. And you need to specify
the format (e.g. PEM or DER).

Well, not sure about "ws" part but in xmlsec the key type is available
from xmlSecKeyPtr object.

Again, not sure about "ws" part but for xmlsec you don't need
key manager if you already have a key in the decryption context.
