Authentication is missing a few details

  • How the serverID is encoded: UTF-8, UTF-16?

The serverId is a hexstring

Yes the serverId is received as a UTF-16 hexstring, but are the UTF-16 byte representation hashed or is the bytes the hex represent hashed or is the hexstring encoded as ASCII bytes before hashed by the sha algorithm. This might be more of a java question, what does sha.update() do with a string. --Ceiru 17:15, 10 June 2012 (MST)

Found it, it is an ASCII encoded string. --Ceiru 17:37, 10 June 2012 (MST)

  • How the hash is encoded: base64, hex?

The hash is encoded as hexstring, too.

Server auth url 404

reports a 404(File not found) should it be .jsp(the old url) or another one?

It is the .jsp page
