Rules for encoding ASN.1 objects which give a consistent encoding for each ASN.1 value using a binary format. Microsoft Internet Explorer understands certificates downloaded in this format.
(DER) A set of rules for encoding ASN.1 defined data as a stream of bits for external storage or transmission. Every ASN.1 object has exactly one corresponding DER encoding. DER is defined in CCITT Recommendation X.509, Section 8.7. This is one of two encoding methods currently used by CryptoAPI.
A set of rules used that describes how to encode ASN.1 data objects unambiguously. See Also: ASN.1
A binary representation of an ASN.1 object and defines how an ASN.1 object is serialized for storage or transmission in computing environments. Used with signed packages.
DER or Distinguished Encoding Rules is a method for encoding a data object, such as an X.509 certificate, to be digitally signed or to have its signature verified.
