2.2.7 Type Serialization Version 2

Version 2 of type serialization is a set of modifications to type serialization version 1, as specified in section 2.2.6. Implementations of these extensions allow marshaling/unmarshaling of application-specified data types by using an application-provided serialization stream, according to either NDR or NDR64 transfer syntax.

Type serialization version 2 MUST use little-endian integer and floating-pointer byte order, IEEE floating-point format representation, and ASCII character format. The first byte in the octet stream MUST be 2 to indicate this level of type serialization.
