There are two types of Tags, and the Tag Number usage varies with each.
- Application Tags
- These have fixed type - boolean, int, date etc.
- Context Specific Tags
- The types of these tags depend on where they are found, in the variable part of the APDU. Their type cannot be determined by inspection alone.
- They have an associated context number; this context number specifies the meaning of the data.
- Context Tags also allow Constructed Tags (lists) to be created.
- See section 20.2.1, pg 377 of the specification
