Python-ASN1 is a simple ASN.1 encoder and decoder for Python 2.7+ and 3.5+.
Python-ASN1 is a simple ASN.1 encoder and decoder for Python 2.7 and 3.5+.
- Support BER (parser) and DER (parser and generator) encoding (except indefinite lengths)
- 100% python, compatible with version 2.7, 3.5 and higher
- Can be integrated by just including a file into your project
Python-ASN1 relies on Python-Future for Python 2 and 3 compatibility. To install Python-Future:
pip install future
How to install Python-asn1
Install from PyPi with the following:
pip install asn1
or download the repository from GitHub and install with the following:
python setup.py install
You can also simply include asn1.py into your project.
How to use Python-asn1
You can find more detailed documentation on the Usage page.
If you want to encode data and retrieve its DER-encoded representation, use code such as:
import asn1 encoder = asn1.Encoder() encoder.start() encoder.write('1.2.3', asn1.Numbers.ObjectIdentifier) encoded_bytes = encoder.output()
If you want to decode ASN.1 from DER or BER encoded bytes, use code such as:
import asn1 decoder = asn1.Decoder() decoder.start(encoded_bytes) tag, value = decoder.read()

The following people have contributed to Python-ASN1. Collectively they own the copyright of this software.
- Fix #89 - Replace explicit references to enum34 by enum-compat
- Fix #21 - Invalid decoding in non-Universal classes
- Fix #57 - Invalid encoding of non-Universal classes
- No change in code, only in packaging and in texts (README, …)
- Tests: Replace nose by pytest
- Add Python 3.8, remove Python 3.4 support
- PR#26 (from rumbah): Add test for default (implicit) encoding types
- PR#25 (from thomwiggers): Attempt to support BIT STRING
- Fix wrong example code, see #27
- (from jcrowgey) Makes the package usable with pip install
- Remove support of Python 3.3 (some dependencies do not support 3.3)
- PR#15 (from ThePlasmaRailgun) Fix parsing of object identifier
- PR#10 (from robinleander): Allow user to determine decoding tagtype
- Use “true” enums instead of classes. Use enun34 backport for old Python versions.
- Fix a bug (#9): two’s complement corner case with values such as -32769. Add new test cases to test them.
- Add more documentation
- Use (simulated) enumerations
- Add Python 2.6 in automated checks and tests
- Add type hints (for static checking) and fix some code
- First public release by Sebastien Andrivet
- Support both python 2 and 3 (with Python-Future)
- All strings are now in unicode
- Add more ASN.1 tags (like PrintableString)
- Fix errors in the example (dump.py)
- Code reorganization
- Initial public release by Geert Jansen
