I'm sorry, I am not sure that I understand this correctly. Are you
saying that the encrypted key is a part of the template ? So this means
that each encrypted XML file will contain the kAES ey used to encrypt the
corresponding xml clear file, the key bing itself encrypted with the RSA

And it will then be possible to extract this node and its content from
the template to dump it in another file... is that correct ?

I'll look, thanks.
