The best source is to look at the other attributes source code in

and the RFC specs that have the ASN.1 definitions. You'll probably find that
one in RFC3280.

Great :)

Give it a try. If it doesn't work then open a bug in bugzilla.ximian.com for
include your code and a sample certificate and I will have a look at it.
