Error description

  • Error Message: When signing/verifying an XML element and if
    "javax.xml.crypto.dsig.cacheReference" is set to TRUE , an
    namespace node is not properly rendered although the below three
    conditions are met according to
    http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-exc-c14n/#sec-Specification :
    A namespace node N with a prefix that does not appear in the
    InclusiveNamespaces PrefixList is rendered if all of the
    conditions are met:
    1. Its parent element is in the node-set, and
    2. it is visibly utilized by its parent element, and
    3. the prefix has not yet been rendered by any output ancestor,
    or the nearest output ancestor of its parent element that
    visibly utilizes the namespace prefix does not have a namespace
    node in the node-set with the same namespace prefix and value as
    N.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Necessary namespace is missing when
    "javax.xml.crypto.dsig.cacheReference" set to TRUE
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix is to keep the necessary namespace when
    "javax.xml.crypto.dsig.cacheReference" is set to TRUE. This
    makes the XML implementation behaves the same on handling
    namespace when "javax.xml.crypto.dsig.cacheReference" is set to
    TRUE or FALSE.
