Remarks

For more information about the <RetrievalMethod> element, see Section 4.4.3 of the XMLDSIG specification, which is available from the W3C at www.w3.org/TR/xmldsig-core/.

Retrieval methods are often used to reference the same KeyInfo information in multiple XMLDSIG signatures, especially when the referenced information is large. For example, a <RetrievalMethod> subelement can be used to reference a KeyInfoX509Data containing an X.509v3 certificate chain validating the signing key.
