Dear all,

here's an issue I've been thinking about for a while, I believe there's a
solution finally:

CI+ defines some simple extensions to X.509 certificates. Unfortunately, the
OIDs for these extensions aren't registered officially. I would still like to
use the extensions from within the DVB-CI dissector without disturbing other
parts that dissect certificates.

The attached patch defines the CI+ extensions without linking them to OIDs.
Additionally, there's functions to enable and disable dissection of these
extensions. They use dissector_change_string() and dissector_reset_string().
This was inspired by the pkcs12 asn1 routines.

I'm curious about your feedback.

Best regards,
