The Public Key Infrastructure using X.509 (PKIX) certificate format,
and many associated formats, are expressed using ASN.1.  The current
ASN.1 modules conform to the 1988 version of ASN.1.  This document
updates those ASN.1 modules to conform to the 2002 version of ASN.1.
There are no bits-on-the-wire changes to any of the formats; this is
simply a change to the syntax.  This document is not an Internet 
Standards Track specification; it is published for informational 

This document is a product of the Public-Key Infrastructure (X.509) Working Group of the IETF.
