An Encoding is a radix 64 encoding/decoding scheme, defined by a 64-character alphabet. The most common encoding is the "base64" encoding defined in RFC 4648 and used in MIME (RFC 2045) and PEM (RFC 1421). RFC 4648 also defines an alternate encoding, which is the standard encoding with - and _ substituted for + and /.
