Can I achieve a round-trip conversion between ASN.1 and XSD using the ASN.1-->XSD and XSD-->ASN.1 translators

Unlike the XSD->ASN.1 translation, which is entirely specified by the ITU-T X.694 standard, the ASN.1->XSD translation is proprietary. Its main purpose is to allow existing ASN.1 applications to "visualize" ASN.1 data using XML.

Due to incompatibilities between the ways XML Schema and ASN.1 handle advanced features (such as, extensibility), the XSD obtained after a translation from ASN.1 might not be suitable for conversion back to ASN.1. Contact us for a more detailed explanation.
