Libtasn1 is a standalone library written in C for manipulating ASN.1
objects including DER/BER encoding and DER/BER decoding.  Libtasn1 is
used by GnuTLS to manipulate X.509 objects and by Shishi to handle
Kerberos V5 packets.

Version 1.7 (released 2008-11-17)
- Add libtasn1-config for compatibility.
  Please stop use it as it will disappear in v2.0!
  Use standard AC_CHECK_FUNCS autoconf tests or pkg-config instead.
- Read PKCS#12 blob as binary file, fixes self-tests under Mingw.
- Fix use of __attribute__ ((deprecated)) to work on non-GCC (#106548).

Commercial support contracts for Libtasn1 are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult, a Stockholm
based privately held company, is currently funding Libtasn1 maintenance.
We are always looking for interesting development projects.  See
http://josefsson.org/ for more details.
