GNU Libtasn1 is a standalone library written in C for manipulating ASN.1
objects including DER/BER encoding/decoding.  GNU Libtasn1 is used by
GnuTLS to handle X.509 structures and by GNU Shishi to handle Kerberos
V5 structures.

NOTE!  Future release announcements will not be cross-posted to
help-gnutls, gnutls-devel or help-shishi.  Please subscribe to info-gnu

Also useful are code coverage charts which indicate parts of the
source code that needs to be tested better by the included self-tests:
