KDE PIM/KItinerary/SBB Barcode
- QR code, content has variable length at around 330 bytes.
- Contains readable strings as well as binary parts.
- Strings seem to be UTF-8 encoded.
- Seems to be a sequence of variable length records, rather than a fixed binary layout, could be some form of TLV encoding (there are some similarities to ASN.1 BER/DER for example).
- Records consist of a 1 byte type field, a 1 byte length field and N content bytes. For strings, the length is the amount of bytes needed to represent the UTF-8 string, not the amount of characters.
- The type field however does not seem to describe semantics, as values repeat for different values (rather than a data type of some form?). This could suggest that the record order defines their semantics? The presence of null records suggests that too, as well as the same record sequence in all samples.
- It is possible that there is a multi-byte length encoding comparable to BER/DER.
- The first 10 bytes don't seem to match the pattern yet, but that might be due to unknown multi-byte length encoding (could be a record containing the entire ticket).
