asn1_bit_der - Man Page

API function


#include <libtasn1.h>

void asn1_bit_der(const unsigned char * str, int bit_len, unsigned char * der, int * der_len);


const unsigned char * str

BIT string.

int bit_len

number of meaningful bits in STR.

unsigned char * der

string returned.

int * der_len

number of meaningful bytes of DER (der[0]..der[ans_len-1]).


Creates a length-value DER encoding for the input data as it would have been for a BIT STRING. The DER encoded data will be copied in  der .

Note that the BIT STRING tag is not included in the output.

This function does not return any value because it is expected that  der_len will contain enough bytes to store the string plus the DER encoding. The DER encoding size can be obtained using asn1_length_der().
