Netscape Certificate Sequence

Netscape Certificate Sequence#

Netscape Certificate Sequence is another PKCS7 object format, and like the SignedData format, it allows multiple certificates to be imported together. This format is simpler than the PKCS7 SignedData object format. It consists of a PKCS7 ContentInfo structure, wrapping a sequence of certificates.

The contentType field OID must be netscape-cert-sequence. The content field is the following ASN.1 structure:

   CertificateSequence ::= SEQUENCE OF Certificate

The base of all Netscape object ids is:

   netscape OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { 2 16 840 1 113730 }
The hexadecimal byte value of this OID when DER encoded is:
   0x60, 0x86, 0x48, 0x01, 0x86, 0xf8, 0x42
