We just started evaluating SBB .Net for creating detached XML signatures, specifically because the support for transformations and filter in the SBB library is excellent. I think we are getting close to the conclusion of the pilot. We are stuck with a particular issue in the references node. I add 2 reference documents, so I get 2 Reference nodes in the output. In addition, the SBB library adds one more Reference node, over which I do not have much control. Now I get the following:

    <ds:Reference Type="http://uri.etsi.org/01903#SignedProperties" URI="#SignedProperties-1646591646">
      <ds:DigestMethod Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#sha256"></ds:DigestMethod>

Whereas the receiver expects like this:

   <ds:Reference Type="http://uri.etsi.org/01903#SignedProperties" URI="#SignedProperties-1646591646">
         <ds:Transform Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xml-c14n-20010315#WithComments"/>
      <ds:DigestMethod Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2001/04/xmlenc#sha256"/>

Could you please indicate how can I add the transform for the standard Reference node? BTW, i've found out how to add the transformation to the reference nodes that I add explicitly of my own. That works flawlessly.

Thank you for contacting us.

You can access the auto-generated SignedProperties reference using ElXMLSigner.Signature.SignedInfo.SigPropRef property. Please refer to this how-to https://www.eldos.com/documentation/sb...igest.html for details. Or use this sample:
