My question is rather :
If I use "dXNlcm5hbWU=" ( perl -MMIME ) or "FMSwa4JOxZMjk2JRf1OLKQ" ( perl -MDigest ) in an encoded username/password mailx sequence with my ISP, is it equivalent.
In other words, when my Internet service provider will check that I am who I claim to be, will they succeed with either encoded methods?

Any comment is welcome.
Maybe this will help?


Your ISP doesn't nothing except store/protect 'your' hash as long as what you send matches the hash stored, all is good.... the hash can't be decoded, that's the point.

A mime type as seen can be decoded, hence not suitable...
