Type GeneralizedTime takes values of the year, month, day, hour, time, minute,second, and second fraction in any of three forms.
The type notation is the keyword GeneralizedTime. For example, if
CurrentTime ::= GeneralizedTime
then any of the following three values of CurrentTime are valid: ``20001231235959.999'' is 1/1000 second before the end of the 20th century local time; ``20001231205959.999Z'' is the universal time three hours different from the above local time; and ``20001231235959.999+0300'' indicates the local time is three hours ahead of universal time.
Applying a size constraint to a GeneralizedTime is not permitted.
