Detailed Description

Interface for encoding and decoding ASN1 objects.

Each class that derives from ASN1Object should provide a serialization format that controls subobject layout. Most of the time the serialization format is taken from a standard, like P1363 or an RFC.

Member Function Documentation

virtual void ASN1Object::BERDecode ( BufferedTransformation bt)
pure virtual

Decode this object from a BufferedTransformation.

Parameters
btBufferedTransformation object

Uses Basic Encoding Rules (BER)

Implemented in PKCS8PrivateKey, X509PublicKey, Integer, InvertibleRSAFunction, InvertibleESIGNFunction, DL_GroupParameters_IntegerBased, and ESIGNFunction.

virtual void ASN1Object::DEREncode ( BufferedTransformation bt) const
pure virtual

Encode this object into a BufferedTransformation.

Parameters
btBufferedTransformation object

Uses Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER)

Implemented in PKCS8PrivateKey, X509PublicKey, Integer, InvertibleRSAFunction, InvertibleESIGNFunction, DL_GroupParameters_IntegerBased, and ESIGNFunction.

virtual void ASN1Object::BEREncode ( BufferedTransformation bt) const
inlinevirtual

Encode this object into a BufferedTransformation.

Parameters
btBufferedTransformation object

Uses Basic Encoding Rules (BER).

This may be useful if DEREncode() would be too inefficient.
