This appendix describes data objects used by conforming PKI
components in an "ASN.1-like" syntax. This syntax is a hybrid of the
1988 and 1993 ASN.1 syntaxes. The 1988 ASN.1 syntax is augmented
with 1993 UNIVERSAL Types UniversalString, BMPString, and UTF8String.
The ASN.1 syntax does not permit the inclusion of type statements in
the ASN.1 module, and the 1993 ASN.1 standard does not permit use of
the new UNIVERSAL types in modules using the 1988 syntax. As a
result, this module does not conform to either version of the ASN.1
This appendix may be converted into 1988 ASN.1 by replacing the
definitions for the UNIVERSAL Types with the 1988 catch-all "ANY".
