[xmlsec] Fwd: Use of full DistinguishedName in KeyName

Excuse my interruption here,
but where is xmlsec1 searching to find the key in reference to
the <KeyName/>? Where should the key/cert be placed so that
xmlsec1 can find it (f.ex. among other keys)? Any specific
directory? Remenber that xmlsec1 is /usr/local/bin/xmlsec1 with
me, and I wonder where the program will search. In my particular
case we are dealing with --crypto openssl

  OK, here is how it works with mscrypto and xmlsec 1.2.18
  Example 1:
  <KeyName>CA, GC, PWGSC-TPSGC, "Ed Shallow"</KeyName>
  Example 2 with a special character:
  <KeyName>CA, GC, PWGSC-TPSGC, "Shallow, Ed"</KeyName>
  In other words, do not use the sub-type qualifiers in the DN
  string i.e. cn= ou= o= c=
  Order is also important.

  OK. Give me a day or so and I will check the source to see if
  anything has changed in the CAPI calls.

  Hi Aleksey,
     Use of full DN in KeyName template element used to work in
  versions of xmlsec.
      As of 1.2.18 I can only get CommonName to work.
  This works
  <KeyName>Shallow Ed</KeyName>
  This does not:
  <KeyName>cn=Shallow Ed,ou=finance,o=acme,c=ca</KeyName>
  I receive an "Object or property cannot be found" message.
  Are there any constraints for naming?
