Python Short Hacking Tip #1: Plain Auth Base 64 Encoding

auth_string = base64.encodestring( '\x00%s\x00%s' % (username, password) )

If you don't want the new line at the end feel free to remove it:
auth_string = base64.encodestring( '\x00%s\x00%s' % (username, password) )[0:-1]

Reading from

I learned that:

"The reason content-free newlines are added at the encode stage is because base64 was originally devised as an encoding mechanism for sending binary content in e-mail, where the line length is limited. Feel free to replace them away if you don't need them."
