I am using the http user id module and have not yet figured out how I can
read the base64 encoded cookie from Ruby. It seems like nginx uses a
different form of base64 than Ruby does...
| uid value = E2F32BD0F154704B0C176D1D02050303
In Ruby I see the cookie encoded like this:
When I try to decode this value with Base64 in Ruby I get:
| require "base64"
| => "0Cvz4ktwVPEdbRcMAwMFAg=="
| => "\320+\363\342KpT\361\035m\027\f\003\003\005\002"
Has anyone an idea about what I am doing wrong here?
[nginx.conf entries regarding http userid]
| userid on;
| userid_name uid;
| userid_domain foo.com;
| userid_path /;
| userid_expires 720d;
| userid_p3p 'policyref="/w3c/p3p.xml", CP="ADMa DEVa PSAa PSDa OUR IND DSP NON COR"';
