Thanks for your answer, Aleksey.
I think I've understood behaviour of xmlsec in this situation.
And according to this logic I assume (and actually I checked it) that when
there isn't any
valid certificate chain result code of signature verification is still
Here is example using command-line tool.
ca.crt isn't related to the certificate in license-signed-ca1-server1.xml.
So, there isn't any valid certificate chain. Why verification status is OK?

So, I have another question: Is it possibe to detect with xmlsec that there
is no one valid certificate chain up to the one of the trusted
certificates? I want to reject signed xml file if there isn't any valid
