What is a BDOB file?

A BDOB file is a Binding Data Object represented in the Concise Binary Object Representation (CBOR) format. The NATO Standardization Office (NSO) defined the BDOB format in Allied Data Publication 4778.8.

More Information

BDOB files are a variant of .BDO (Binding Data Object) files. Just like BDO files, BDOB files are used to associate (or bind) metadata with data objects, making it easier for NATO members to manage and retrieve information.

Unlike BDO files, however, the data that BDOB files contain is not saved in a plain text format. Instead, it is saved in the .CBOR format, which is a binary-based variant of JSON.

How to open a BDOB file

Because BDOB files are just renamed .CBOR files, you can use various CBOR implementations to decode a BDOB file to a plain text format. A list of common CBOR implementations is maintained here.
