Digitally signing XML document and delivering via httpsin a c++application

    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 using a tool 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

    ISO/IEC 14882:2003 does not discuss XML, certificates, digiital
    signatures, etc...

    May I suggest you ask in either a Linux or a Solaris newsgroup?
