         New ASN.1 Modules for the Evidence Record Syntax (ERS)
                   draft-housley-ers-asn1-modules-00

Abstract

   The Evidence Record Syntax (ERS) and the conventions for including
   these evidence record in the Server-Based Certificate Validation
   Protocol (SCVP) are expressed using ASN.1.  This document updates
   those ASN.1 modules to conform to the 2002 version of ASN.1 and
   employ the conventions adopted in RFC 5911, RFC 5912, and RFC 6268.
   There are no bits-on-the-wire changes to any of the formats; this is
   simply a change to the ASN.1 syntax.

1.  Introduction

   Some developers would like the IETF to use the latest version of
   ASN.1 in its standards.  This document provides alternate ASN.1
   modules to assist in that goal.

   The Evidence Record Syntax (ERS) [RFC4998] provides two ASN.1
   modules, one using the 1988 syntax [OLD-ASN1], which has been
   deprecated by the ITU-T, and another one using the 2002 syntax
   [NEW-ASN1], which continued to be maintained and enhanced.  This
   document provides an alternate ASN.1 module that follows the
   conventions established in [RFC5911], [RFC5912], and [RFC6268].

   In addition, [RFC5276] specifies the mechanism for conveying Evidence
   Records in the Server-Based Certificate Validation Protocol (SCVP)
   [RFC5055].  There is only one ASN.1 module in [RFC5276], and it uses
   the 1988 syntax [OLD-ASN1].  This document provides an alternate
   ASN.1 module using the 2002 syntax [NEW-ASN1] and follows the
   conventions established in [RFC5911], [RFC5912], and [RFC6268].  Note
   that [RFC5912] already includes an alternate ASN.1 module for SCVP
   [RFC5055].

   The alternate ASN.1 modules in this document get some of their
   definitions from places different than the modules in [RFC4998] and
   [RFC5276].  The idea is that these alternate ASN.1 modules, when
   combined with the modules in [RFC5911], [RFC5912], and [RFC6268] can
   stand on their own.  These modules do not import definitions from
   anywhere else, some of which are somewhat difficult to find.
