ObjectIdentifier type

class pyasn1.type.univ.ObjectIdentifier(value=NoValue(), tagSet=TagSet(), subtypeSpec=ConstraintsIntersection())

Create ObjectIdentifier schema or value object.

ObjectIdentifier objects are immutable and duck-type Python tuple objects (tuple of non-negative integers).

Keyword Arguments:
 
  • value (tuple, str or ObjectIdentifier object) – Python sequence of int or string literal or ObjectIdentifier object.
  • tagSet (TagSet) – Object representing non-default ASN.1 tag(s)
  • subtypeSpec (ConstraintsIntersection) – Object representing non-default ASN.1 subtype constraint(s)
Raises:

PyAsn1Error – On constraint violation or bad initializer.

Examples

class ID(ObjectIdentifier):
    '''
    ASN.1 specification:

    ID ::= OBJECT IDENTIFIER

    id-edims ID ::= { joint-iso-itu-t mhs-motif(6) edims(7) }
    id-bp ID ::= { id-edims 11 }
    '''
id_edims = ID('2.6.7')
id_bp = id_edims + (11,)

Note

The ObjectIdentifier type models ASN.1 OBJECT IDENTIFIER as a sequence of integer numbers.

clone(value=NoValue(), tagSet=TagSet(), subtypeSpec=ConstraintsIntersection())

Create a modified version of ObjectIdentifier schema or value object.

The clone() method accepts the same set arguments as ObjectIdentifier class takes on instantiation except that all arguments of the clone() method are optional.

Whatever arguments are supplied, they are used to create a copy of self taking precedence over the ones used to instantiate self.

Note

Due to the immutable nature of the ObjectIdentifier object, if no arguments are supplied, no new ObjectIdentifier object will be created and self will be returned instead.

subtype(value=NoValue(), implicitTag=Tag(), explicitTag=Tag(), subtypeSpec=ConstraintsIntersection())

Create a specialization of ObjectIdentifier schema or value object.

The subtype relationship between ASN.1 types has no correlation with subtype relationship between Python types. ASN.1 type is mainly identified by its tag(s) (TagSet) and value range constraints (ConstraintsIntersection). These ASN.1 type properties are implemented as ObjectIdentifier attributes.

The subtype() method accepts the same set arguments as ObjectIdentifier class takes on instantiation except that all parameters of the subtype() method are optional.

With the exception of the arguments described below, the rest of supplied arguments they are used to create a copy of self taking precedence over the ones used to instantiate self.

The following arguments to subtype() create a ASN.1 subtype out of ObjectIdentifier type:

Other Parameters:
 
  • implicitTag (Tag) – Implicitly apply given ASN.1 tag object to self’s TagSet, then use the result as new object’s ASN.1 tag(s).
  • explicitTag (Tag) – Explicitly apply given ASN.1 tag object to self’s TagSet, then use the result as new object’s ASN.1 tag(s).
  • subtypeSpec (ConstraintsIntersection) – Add ASN.1 constraints object to one of the self’s, then use the result as new object’s ASN.1 constraints.
Returns:

new instance of ObjectIdentifier schema or value object

Note

Due to the immutable nature of the ObjectIdentifier object, if no arguments are supplied, no new ObjectIdentifier object will be created and self will be returned instead.

tagSet = <TagSet object at 0x10511b6a0 tags 0:0:6>

Set (on class, not on instance) or return a TagSet object representing ASN.1 tag(s) associated with ObjectIdentifier type.

subtypeSpec = <ConstraintsIntersection object>

Set (on class, not on instance) or return a ConstraintsIntersection object imposing constraints on ObjectIdentifier type initialization values.

isPrefixOf(other)

Indicate if this ObjectIdentifier object is a prefix of other ObjectIdentifier object.

Parameters:other (|ASN.1| object) – ObjectIdentifier object
Returns:boolTrue if this ObjectIdentifier object is a parent (e.g. prefix) of the other ObjectIdentifier object or False otherwise.
effectiveTagSet

For ObjectIdentifier type is equivalent to tagSet

isSameTypeWith(other, matchTags=True, matchConstraints=True)

Examine ObjectIdentifier type for equality with other ASN.1 type.

ASN.1 tags (tag) and constraints (constraint) are examined when carrying out ASN.1 types comparison.

Python class inheritance relationship is NOT considered.

Parameters:other (a pyasn1 type object) – Class instance representing ASN.1 type.
Returns:boolTrue if other is ObjectIdentifier type, False otherwise.
isSuperTypeOf(other, matchTags=True, matchConstraints=True)

Examine ObjectIdentifier type for subtype relationship with other ASN.1 type.

ASN.1 tags (tag) and constraints (constraint) are examined when carrying out ASN.1 types comparison.

Python class inheritance relationship is NOT considered.

Parameters:other (a pyasn1 type object) – Class instance representing ASN.1 type.
Returns:boolTrue if other is a subtype of ObjectIdentifier type, False otherwise.
isValue

Indicate that ObjectIdentifier object represents ASN.1 value.

If isValue is False then this object represents just ASN.1 schema.

If isValue is True then, in addition to its ASN.1 schema features, this object can also be used like a Python built-in object (e.g. int, str, dict etc.).

Returns:boolFalse if object represents just ASN.1 schema. True if object represents ASN.1 schema and can be used as a normal value.

Note

There is an important distinction between PyASN1 schema and value objects. The PyASN1 schema objects can only participate in ASN.1 schema-related operations (e.g. defining or testing the structure of the data). Most obvious uses of ASN.1 schema is to guide serialisation codecs whilst encoding/decoding serialised ASN.1 contents.

The PyASN1 value objects can additionally participate in many operations involving regular Python objects (e.g. arithmetic, comprehension etc).

tagMap

Return a TagMap object mapping ASN.1 tags to ASN.1 objects within callee object.
