Italicised terms in this Section shall have their Blue Book meaning.
An ESME shall have a Dataobject with OBIS code 0-0:18.104.22.168 where attribute 2 of that object:
shall be a double-long-unsigned value;
shall have a value set by the ESME to the number of seconds between 0 hours 0 minutes 0 seconds on 1st January 2000 UTC and the value of UTC time specified by attribute 2 of the Clock object with OBIS code 0-0:22.214.171.124;
shall be the format recorded by the ESME in attribute 2 of any Profile generic object entry in other date-time fields.
the ‘from_value’ and ‘to_value’ fields in the selective accessstructure, which are required by the GBCS when accessing attribute 2 of any Profile generic object directly, shall be double-long-unsigned attributes containing a date-time specified in seconds since 0 hours 0 minutes 0 seconds on 1st January 2000 UTC; and
the restricting_objectfield in the selective access structure shall be set with values of class_id = 1; logical_name = 0-0:126.96.36.199; attribute_index = 2 and data_index = 0.
The Blue Book requires that, for a Data Protection class object, restriction_by_dateaccess has from_date and to_date specified as octet-string. Thus, where a Use Case requires that the contents of attribute 2 of a Profile generic object are returned in Encrypted form (and so accessed via a Data Protection object):
the from_date and to_date fields in the Command shall be octet-strings formatted as per section 188.8.131.52 of the Blue Book; and
the ESME shall undertake the conversion necessary to equate these values to ‘from_value’ and ‘to_value’ equivalents in accessingattribute 2 of any Profile generic object.
