dumpasn1 - ASN.1 object dump/syntax check program
dumpasn1 [-acdefghilmoprstuvwxz] <file>
An ASN.1 object dump program which will dump data encoded using any of the ASN.1 encoding rules in a variety of user-specified formats. DumpASN1 - ASN.1 object dump/syntax check program. Copyright Peter Gutmann 1997 - 2012. Last updated 8 June 2013. Input options: - = Take input from stdin (some options may not work properly) -<number> = Start <number> bytes into the file -- = End of arg list -c<file> = Read Object Identifier info from alternate config file (values will override equivalents in global config file) Output options: -f<file> = Dump object at offset -<number> to file (allows data to be extracted from encapsulating objects) -w<number> = Set width of output, default = 80 columns Display options: -a = Print all data in long data blocks, not just the first 128 bytes -d = Print dots to show column alignment -g = Display ASN.1 structure outline only (no primitive objects) -h = Hex dump object header (tag+length) before the decoded output -hh = Same as -h but display more of the object as hex data -i = Use shallow indenting, for deeply-nested objects -l = Long format, display extra info about Object Identifiers -m<number> = Maximum nesting level for which to display content -p = Pure ASN.1 output without encoding information -t = Display text values next to hex dump of data -v = Verbose mode, equivalent to -ahlt Format options: -e = Don't print encapsulated data inside OCTET/BIT STRINGs -r = Print bits in BIT STRING as encoded in reverse order -u = Don't format UTCTime/GeneralizedTime string data -x = Display size and offset in hex not decimal Checking options: -o = Don't check validity of character strings hidden in octet strings -s = Syntax check only, don't dump ASN.1 structures -z = Allow zero-length items Warnings generated by deprecated OIDs require the use of '-l' to be displayed. Program return code is the number of errors found or EXIT_SUCCESS.
$HOME/.dumpasn1.cfg, /etc/dumpasn1/dumpasn1.cfg: This is the configuration file, it will be searched in this order. It contains OIDs commonly used.
