Is there a way to encode an INTEGER value that is bigger than the largest supported integer on the desired platform?

Yes. You may use the ASN1.HugeInteger or OSS.HUGE compiler directive in your ASN.1 specification to generate a representation of the INTEGER type which can hold arbitrarily large integer values.

Please refer to the OSS ASN.1 Compiler for C Reference Manual (section 5.4.1.3 and section 5.4.2.24 of the April 2011 edition) for more information on this.
