Back on October 23rd, a blog entry was posted detailing a new ASN1VE release that was in the works.  We are pleased to announce that this is now an official release.

ASN1VE (ASN.1 Viewer/Editor) is a tool for analyzing and editing ASN.1 encoded data.  It allows an ASN.1 specification to be associated with a binary message encoded using the BER, DER, or PER encoding rules, providing a detailed hierarchical view of all data withing the message.

To recap, the new release adds the following new capabilities:

  • Capability to create and edit ASN.1 schema files. The files can be validated within the editor to make finding and fixing syntax errors easier.
  • Improved Call Detail Record (CDR) file handling.  Information on header offsets and block parameters is now part of the project file instead of in the global configuration area.
  • Automatic schema assignment for files identified as PKIX (X.509) certificates is now supported.  The built-in PKIX 2009 schemas are used instead of the older, X.509 version 3 schemas.
  • Support has been added for automatic schema assignment for PEM Certification Request messages as well as PEM certificate messages.
  • Improved project creation and editing.  Project information can now be edited directly within the project frame or by using the new 'Project -> Edit Project..' command.
  • A Windows 64-bit version of the product is now available.

The new version is available for download from the product page.  Please contact us with any questions or comments.
