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 2.1 (released 2009-04-17)
- Fix compilation failure on platforms that can't generate empty archives,
  e.g., Mac OS X.  Reported by David Reiser <dbreiser at gmail.com>.

Commercial support contracts for Libtasn1 are available, and they help
finance continued maintenance.  Simon Josefsson Datakonsult AB, 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.
