## Overview#

BIT STRING is a ASN.1 Simple Type which takes values that are an ordered sequence of zero or more bits.The bit sequence is either a binary or hexadecimal string delimited by single quotes followed by B or H, respectively.

For example, 11010001 B or 82DA6 H are valid values of BIT STRING.

The length of the string of bits must be a multiple of four when hexadecimal is used.

BIT STRING also has a form similar to INTEGER (Ldapwiki uses Bitmask), but the numbers in parentheses indicate location in the string of bits. For example, the type notation

Occupation ::= BIT STRING { clerk (0) editor (1) artist (2) publisher (3) }
