 A Canonical Sexpression (or csexp) is a binary encoding form of a subset of general Sexpression (or sexp). It was designed for use in SPKI to retain the power of Sexpressions and ensure canonical form for applications such as digital signatures while achieving the compactness of a binary form and maximizing the speed of parsing. The particular subset of general Sexpressions applicable here is composed of atoms, which are byte strings, and parentheses used to delimit lists or sublists. These Sexpressions are fully recursive. While Sexpressions are typically encoded as text, with spaces delimiting atoms and quotation marks used to surround atoms that contain spaces, when using the canonical encoding each atom is encoded as a lengthprefixed byte string. No whitespace separating adjacent elements in a list is permitted. The length of an atom is expressed as an ASCII decimal number followed by a ":". (en)
