Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRKRB-490) Separate ASN1 parser
Date Tue, 08 Dec 2015 10:11:11 GMT
Kai Zheng created DIRKRB-490:

             Summary: Separate ASN1 parser
                 Key: DIRKRB-490
             Project: Directory Kerberos
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Kai Zheng
            Assignee: Kai Zheng

*Kerby-asn1* is mainly a user model/type driven or oriented framework. The ASN1 parsing procedure
is tightly coupled with the model value binding process. Recent changes made good progress,
and this would decouple the two aspects totally and provide separate ASN1 parser to cover
use cases supported by other libraries as well. In other words, users can use this facility
to parse data stream to emit ASN1 built-in type objects without having to define their models
or types. This is very handy for small tasks or tools. 

With this separating, the codes for user model type support and value binding will also be
cleaner and easy to understand, since the part won't care parsing logics. With the new parser
added, the library will be more complete.
