Hello, community. In Dissecting UTF8String encoded with ASN.1 it was about built-in Wireshark dissectors dissecting UTF6AString values coded in ASN.1. That issue was successfully clarified. But what about plugins. There is a source file ~/plugins/asn1/packet-asn1.c where UTF8String is mentioned but not processed. Is it the file to be worked on?

No, that plugin processes asn1 descriptions in some format and dissects according to that I beleve. It is an old not maintained plugin. New ASN1 based dissectors should use asn2wrs and the per/ber dissectors. The needed funktions should be available from plugins too.
