The ASN.1 library processes data that complies with the Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1) standard. The ISO and ITU-T organizations maintains the ASN.1 standard, a standard that the telecommunication industry uses. The standard uses a protocol specification syntax that represents data in compact structures, in binary or text formats.
Use the wizard to create a Data Processor transformation that parses ASN.1 protocol specifications. The Developer tool creates the following objects:
An XML schema used to represent the ASN.1 data.
A Parser, Serializer, and Mapper that contain an
document processor. The processor input data conforms to the protocol specification. The output represents the same data in XML.
The transformation contains objects that you configure to process ASN.1 source data. The current ASN.1 library release processes input in the ASN.1 BER encoding.
The library includes a copy of the OSS Nokalva ASN-1Step utility. Use the utility to edit ASN.1 files. You can access the ASN.1 library services through the C/C++ API or the .NET API.
The ASN.1 library transformations do not validate their input. If the input is not valid, the transformations might fail or might generate unexpected output.
