DESCRIPTION

xmlsec-checksig checks a digital signature embedded in an XML file using the Apache XML Security for C++ library. It reads the XML document to check from the provided input file and expects the signature to follow the XML Digital Signature and Encryption specifications.

OPTIONS

Note that each option must be given as a separate argument.

Use the HMAC key specified by string.
Use the attribute id with name name. To also specify the namespace, use --idns instead.
Use the attribute id specified by the namespace URI ns-uri and the name name.
Use the interop resolver for the Baltimore interop examples.
Skip checking references and only check the signature.
Use the Apache XML Security for C++ test XMLDSig URI resolver.

RETURN STATUS

xmlsec-checksig exits with status 0 if the signature is valid and with status 1 if the signature is not valid. If it cannot process the input file for some reason, it exits with status 2.
