About Base64 tool
Place an entry in the Input window and crypt or decrypt via Base64.
Base64 is a group of schemes that encode binary to text. This represents binary data in an ASCII strong format. Translation is done via radix 64. The term comes from a MIME encoding. These schemes are typically used when you need to encode binary data stored over media that deals with textual data. Data remains intact with no modification during transport. Email via MIME is one application. Storing data in XML is another application. Encoding that is now called MIME Base64 was first used in a standardized way was through privacy-enhanced mail using the PEM protocol in the mid 1980’s. PEM uses a Base64 scheme that transforms octets to a format of 60bit characters that can use SMTP.
Here is an example using Crypt.
