9780126333619: ASN.1 Communication Between Heterogeneous Systems

ASN.1, Abstract Syntax Notation Version 1, is a notation that is used in describing messages to be exchanged between communicating application programs. This book is a pure programming tutorial on the fundamentals and features of ASN.1. The purpose of this book is to explain ASN.1 and its encoding rules in easy-to-understand terms. It addresses the subject at both an introductory level that is suitable for beginners, and at a more detailed level that is meant for those who seek a deeper understanding of ASN.1 and the encoding rules.

Follow-up to last years, ASN.1 Complete by John Larmouth. While Larmouth's book is a comprehensive language reference, this book is a practical programming tutorial.

From the Back Cover:

ASN.1 Communication Between Heterogeneous Systems is a book written for novices and experienced ASN.1 users alike. Inside, you'll find all the introduction you need to begin mastering ASN.1, followed by a detailed User's Guide and Reference Manual. Organized in order of increasing difficulty, this section teaches you ASN.1 syntax and semantics and the techniques you need to know to use the notation-whether to specify a new protocol or to apply an existing ASN.1 protocol in a new application.

More experienced users can move directly to complete coverage of ASN.1 encoding rules and transfer syntaxes. Additional advanced material focuses on questions/issues that commonly arise when implementing ASN.1 applications, ranging from automatic treatments of specifications to editing tools.


  • Offers ASN.1 newcomers a helpful introduction to data communications, the role of this dominant notation, and all its key concepts and application domains.
  • Provides a graduated, step-by-step instruction focused on using ASN.1 syntax and semantics in real-world protocol specifications.
  • Introduces and explains the four standardized sets of encoding rules associated with ASN.1.
  • Gives experienced users the advanced coverage required to solve special problems arising in specific ASN.1 applications.
  • Discusses ASN.1 in the context of other formal languages (including SDL, TTCN, and GDMO) and compares it to other abstract syntax notations.
  • Organized around detailed examples developed to ensure your complete understanding.
