As per 36.331 4.2.2 below is mention for SRB.
Signalling radio bearers
"Signalling Radio Bearers" (SRBs) are defined as Radio Bearers (RB) that are used only for the transmission of RRC and NAS messages. More specifically, the following three SRBs are defined:

  • SRB0 is for RRC messages using the CCCH logical channel;
  • SRB1 is for RRC messages (which may include a piggybacked NAS message) as well as for NAS messages
    prior to the establishment of SRB2, all using DCCH logical channel;
  • SRB2 is for NAS messages, using DCCH logical channel. SRB2 has a lower-priority than SRB1 and is always

configured by E-UTRAN after security activation.

When sending an "Identity request" NAS message to the UE from the MME, should this message be ASN.1 encoded at RRC layer and then forwarded to PDCP and down the line or without ASN.1 encoding.

Can someone please help me in understanding "how to handle NAS messages at RRC" i.e, how to add a RRC header.
