Python-ASN1 is a simple ASN.1 encoder and decoder for Python 2.6+ and 3.3+.

Python-ASN1 is a simple ASN.1 encoder and decoder for Python 2.6+ and 3.3+.

Features

  • Support BER (parser) and DER (parser and generator) encoding
  • 100% python, compatible with version 2.6, 2.7, 3.3 and higher
  • Can be integrated by just including a file into your project

Dependencies

Python-ASN1 relies on Python-Future for Python 2 and 3 compatibility. To install Python-Future:

pip install future

How to install Python-asn1

Install from PyPi with the following:

pip install asn1

or download the repository from GitHub and install with the following:

python setup.py install

You can also simply include asn1.py into your project.

How to use Python-asn1

Note

You can find more detailed documentation on the Usage page.

Encoding

If you want to encode data and retrieve its DER-encoded representation, use code such as:

import asn1

encoder = asn1.Encoder()
encoder.start()
encoder.write('1.2.3', asn1.ObjectIdentifier)
encoded_bytes = encoder.output()

Decoding

If you want to decode ASN.1 from DER or BER encoded bytes, use code such as:

import asn1

decoder = asn1.Decoder()
decoder.start(encoded_bytes)
tag, value = decoder.read()

Documentation

The complete documentation is available on Read The Docs:
