by Olivier Dubuisson

ASN.1, Abstract Syntax Notation Version 1, is a notation that is used in describing messages to be exchanged between communicating application programs. This book is a pure programming tutorial on the fundamentals and features of ASN.1. The purpose of this book is to explain ASN.1 and its encoding rules in easy-to-understand terms. It addresses the subject at both an introductory level that is suitable for beginners, and at a more detailed level that is meant for those who seek a deeper understanding of ASN.1 and the encoding rules.Follow-up to last years, ASN.1 Complete by John Larmouth. While Larmouth's book is a comprehensive language reference, this book is a practical programming tutorial.

ASN.1 education of the reader is divided into 4 parts in this book, making it a wonderful tool not only for beginners but also for those who have an advanced understanding for ASN.1 and encoding rules and transfer syntaxes. I found the book easy to read and the many quotes scattered throughout the book were quite appropriate and added a distinct sense of humor. The numerous Figures and Tables throughout the book make a difficult subject much easier to understand. Anyone who needs or wants to know more about ASN.1 should read this book.

If you have to do anything ASN.1, you man need to write it from scratch. You probably will not get there without this book.

Like most reference books, you get the most information out of the few pages you actually read, but at least it is in there.
Barely informational. It would have been if it listed it all types in a table format for a quick referencing however types ,tags are embedded in a deeply wordy text which is time confusing to use.
Olivier Dubuisson's book is cleverly arranged, so that those who don't need a lot of technical information can get an understanding of ASN.1, and those who want to know all about ASN.1 can go through the entire book. The book progresses from beginner to advanced in a logical manner and is easy to follow.
I read it in May (in pdf format) and found it easy to understand as a newcomer to ASN.1. I have since re-read it, working my way up from ASN.1 cluelessness, and have found this book an invaluable help at each step of ASN.1 education.
Mr. Dubuisson's writing style turns what could be a very dry and boring subject into something with a bit of humor and very reader-friendly. Five stars to ASN.1 Communication between Heterogeneous Systems by Olivier Dubuisson!
ASN.1 Communication Between Heterogeneous Systems is a book written for novices and experienced ASN.1 users alike. Inside, you'll find all the introduction you need to begin mastering ASN.1, followed by a detailed User's Guide and Reference Manual. Organized in order of increasing difficulty, this section teaches you ASN.1 syntax and semantics and the techniques you need to know to use the notation-whether to specify a new protocol or to apply an existing ASN.1 protocol in a new application. More experienced users can move directly to complete coverage of ASN.1 encoding rules and transfer syntaxes. Additional advanced material focuses on questions/issues that commonly arise when implementing ASN.1 applications, ranging from automatic treatments of specifications to editing tools.

All I wanted to know about ASN.1 was there, especially BER encoding. In my view this book is a bit superior to ASN.1 Complete from Larmouth but having both was great. A bit more details on DER encoding would have been even better.
