Abstract Syntax Notation and Encoding Rules for Financial Industry Standards
: Brown Technical Book Store
This tutorial guideline helps the user to understand Abstract Syntax Notation One (ASN.1), the international standard language for defining and encoding data elements in the open systems environment. ASN.1 provides for a more precise specification of message fields and other data, improving interoperability and reducing costs. TG-9 familiarizes the reader with the ASN.1 concepts in ISO/IEC 8824, Specification of ASN.1 and ISO/IEC 8825, Specification for Basic Encoding Rules for ASN.1, without requiring the reader to read the international documents.
