Basic Encoding Rules
<protocol, standard> (BER) ASN.1 encoding rules for producing
self-identifying and self-delimiting transfer syntax for data structures
described in ASN.1 notations.
BER is an self-identifying and self-delimiting encoding scheme, which means that
each data value can be identified, extracted and decoded individually.
Huw Rogers once described BER as "a triumph of bloated theory over clean
implementation". He also criticises it as designed around bitstreams with
arbitrary boundaries between data which can only be determined at a high level.
