Q: Your compiler supplies a der_encode() procedure. How do I encode BER?
The DER (and CER) are stricter subsets of a more generic BER encoding
method. If you encode data with DER or CER, all BER-conformant decoders
will easily understand that. Hence, to encode data in the BER format,
simply use the DER encoder, der_encode().

Basic Encoding Rules (BER),
Canonical Encoding Rules (CER) and
Distinguished Encoding Rules (DER)"
