Base64 Text Encoder Decoder

Within the Connector Application is a tool called the Base64 Encoder/Decoder that can convert any human readable text into a Base64 text representation, as well as convert Base64 text back into human readable text. Text that has been stored in the Bas64 form is used by software for a wide variety of purposes. One of the most notable forms is for sending user names and passwords together across the internet so that services can allow or deny access to their systems, using Basic Access Authentication.
