Decoding data

I see that Sun has a new look on our website today - I like it. I then noticed that my blog is linked from the Solaris Security Page as a Security related blog. Hmmm, I sort of feel obligated to post a bit more frequently now and try to remain topical (it's hard).

Lately, I've had my head buried in ASN.1 encoding and decoding software. If you have ever needed to parse ASN.1 data, you may sympathize with me a bit - it is a pain. There are some freeware tools for helping encode and decode ASN.1 data, but upon closer investigation, they always seem to fall short in some critical area - such as being able to parse and compile a complex ASN.1 syntax like PKCS#12. Anyway, if anyone can recommend a good ASN.1 package, I'd love to hear from you. (I've already looked at esnacc and asn1c).
