RFC 6019 BinaryTime September 2010
This document specifies a new ASN.1 [ASN1] type for representing time: BinaryTime. This ASN.1 type can be used to represent date and time values.
This document also specifies an alternative to the signing-time attribute used with the Cryptographic Message Syntax [CMS] SignedData and AuthenticatedData content types, allowing the BinaryTime type to be used instead of the traditional UTCTime and GeneralizedTime types.
