Definitions for "Basic Encoding Rules"
Keywords:  asn, ber, notation, syntax, encode
A specification for encoding an ASN.1-defined data structure for transmission over a data connection. Defined in ITU-T X.209.
A set of rules used to encode abstract syntax notation one (ASN.1) values as strings of octets.
(BER) The set of rules used to encode ASN.1 defined data into a stream of bits (zeros or ones) for external storage or transmission. A single ASN.1 object may have several equivalent BER encodes. BER is defined in CCITT Recommendation X.209. This is one of the two encoding methods currently used by CryptoAPI.
