Available in all subroutines.

Equivalent to crypto.decrypt_hex but with the ciphertext encoded in Base64. The plaintext returned is also encoded in Base64.

Base64 decoding behaves as if by a call to digest.base64_decode. See that function for handling invalid characters and the behavior of padding. Unlike digest.base64_decode, the decoded output is used directly (rather than constructing a VCL STRING type), and so binary content is permitted, including possible NUL bytes.

Base64 encoding behaves as if by a call to digest.base64.

Note that the key and Initialization Vector (IV) are encoded as hex strings.
