Const-friendly implementation of the ISO/IEC Object Identifier (OID) standard as defined in ITU X.660, with support for BER/DER encoding/decoding as well as heapless
no_std (i.e. embedded) environments.
Object Identifiers, a.k.a. OIDs, are an International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and ISO/IEC standard for naming any object, concept, or “thing” with a globally unambiguous persistent name.
The ITU‘s X.660 standard provides the OID specification. Every OID is part of a hierarchical namespace which begins with a root OID, which is either the ITU’s root OID (0), the ISO's root OID (1), or the joint ISO/ITU root OID (2).
The following is an example of an OID, in this case identifying the

This library supports parsing OIDs in const contexts, e.g.:
use const_oid::ObjectIdentifier; pub const MY_OID: ObjectIdentifier = ObjectIdentifier::new_unwrap("1.2.840.1135126.96.36.199");
The OID parser is implemented entirely in terms of
const fn and without the use of proc macros.
Additionally, it also includes a
const fn OID serializer, and stores the OIDs parsed from const contexts encoded using the BER/DER serialization (sans header).
ObjectIdentifier to impl
AsRef<[u8]> which can be used to obtain the BER/DER serialization of an OID, even one declared
Additionally, it impls
TryFrom<&[u8]> and functions just as well as a runtime OID library.
This crate requires Rust 1.57 at a minimum.
We may change the MSRV in the future, but it will be accompanied by a minor version bump.
