Section C.1.1.1. says:

GeneralizedTime : "197110141200Z"

It should say:

GeneralizedTime : "19711014120000Z"


11 Restrictions on BER employed by both CER and DER
11.7 GeneralizedTime
11.7.2 The seconds element shall always be present.

In rfc 3739, C.3 DER-encoding, the second-zeroes are present:
... ..313937 31313031 34313230 3030305A ...
They are just missing in the string representation above.

Additionally RFC 5280 requires the second-zeroes be present.
