Overview

The parent class for all primitive encodings. Attributes are the same as for ASN1Data, with the addition of tagging. Primitive values can never be infinite length encodings, thus it is not possible to set the infinite_length attribute for Primitive and its sub-classes.

Primitive sub-classes and their mapping to Ruby classes

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::EndOfContent <=> value is always nil

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::Boolean <=> value is a Boolean

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::Integer <=> value is a Number

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::BitString <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::OctetString <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::Null <=> value is always nil

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::Object <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::Enumerated <=> value is a Number

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::UTF8String <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::NumericString <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::PrintableString <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::T61String <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::VideotexString <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::IA5String <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::UTCTime <=> value is a Time

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::GeneralizedTime <=> value is a Time

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::GraphicString <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::ISO64String <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::GeneralString <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::UniversalString <=> value is a String

  • OpenSSL::ASN1::BMPString <=> value is a String

OpenSSL::ASN1::BitString

Additional attributes

unused_bits: if the underlying BIT STRING's length is a multiple of 8 then unused_bits is 0. Otherwise unused_bits indicates the number of bits that are to be ignored in the final octet of the BitString's value.

OpenSSL::ASN1::ObjectId

While OpenSSL::ASN1::ObjectId.new will allocate a new ObjectId, it is not typically allocated this way, but rather that are received from parsed ASN1 encodings.

Additional attributes

  • sn: the short name as defined in <openssl/objects.h>.

  • ln: the long name as defined in <openssl/objects.h>.

  • oid: the object identifier as a String, e.g. “1.2.3.4.5”

  • short_name: alias for sn.

  • long_name: alias for ln.

Examples

With the Exception of OpenSSL::ASN1::EndOfContent, each Primitive class constructor takes at least one parameter, the value.

Creating EndOfContent

eoc = OpenSSL::ASN1::EndOfContent.new

Creating any other Primitive

prim = <class>.new(value) # <class> being one of the sub-classes except EndOfContent
prim_zero_tagged_implicit = <class>.new(value, 0, :IMPLICIT)
prim_zero_tagged_explicit = <class>.new(value, 0, :EXPLICIT)

Constructor Details

#OpenSSL::ASN1::Primitive.new(value[, tag, tagging, tag_class ]) ⇒ Primitive

value: is mandatory.

tag: optional, may be specified for tagged values. If no tag is specified, the UNIVERSAL tag corresponding to the Primitive sub-class is used by default.

tagging: may be used as an encoding hint to encode a value either explicitly or implicitly, see ASN1 for possible values.

tag_class: if tag and tagging are nil then this is set to :UNIVERSAL by default. If either tag or tagging are set then :CONTEXT_SPECIFIC is used as the default. For possible values please cf. ASN1.

Example

int = OpenSSL::ASN1::Integer.new(42)
zero_tagged_int = OpenSSL::ASN1::Integer.new(42, 0, :IMPLICIT)
private_explicit_zero_tagged_int = OpenSSL::ASN1::Integer.new(42, 0, :EXPLICIT, :PRIVATE)
