digitally signing XML document and delivering via https in c++

    I need to sign a document using XML DSIG C++ library and deliver using
    openssl and https, as a client to customer's web services application
    server.

    I have following questions
    1) Can I create certificate like keytool available on LINUX and
    Solaris, use that certificate to digitally sign the XML document? Do I
    need to get a certificate from certificate authority like verisign?
    2) If I embed the certificate inside the XML, say, keyinfo tag, can
    recipient verify the signature using information in the XML document?
    That is, do they need to have a copy of certificate locally?

    Thanks,
    RU
