Hi Aleksey,

Thanks a lot for your prompt reply !

The encryption method used is AES128CBC and the encrypted file is indeed
base64 encoded.
Yes, there are eols in the encrypted document. YOu write "if you have
them": do you mean that it is possible not to have them ?
If yes, I'd very interested in learning how to disable tem in xmlsec,
because the application which will decrypt does not currently support

Many thanks in advance for your help,

PS: is it possible to disable the "text" nodes in the output trees
generated by xmlsec ? My guess is that it is not possible, but actually
this feature would be very convenient.
