This syntax can only be transmitted in binary form.
For two octet strings to match, they must be the same length and the corresponding bit sequence (octets) must be identical. When comparing two strings, the first pair of octets that do not match are used to determine the order of the strings.
For help in understanding the syntax definition template, see Reading Syntax Definitions.
- Attributes using this syntax can set size limits.
