[JDEV] 0K Authentication

I finally got it working! You know what the problem was? Apparently the
algorithm was fine, but your answer took out one issue that I didn't have
to worry about... However, it triggered another issue that I never thought
Hashing lowercase hex is all good.. But also I have to return the final
hash result in lowercase back to the server... Apparently, the server will
not lowercase it first before starting to apply the hash..
I lowercased the final hash and sent it back to the server and it accepted it!
So just curious, should the server side at least implement a function such
that the returned hash should be case insensitive rather than case
sensitive? (And probably mention this in the JEP too)... I think the
server should accomodate this and lowercase the authentication hash
received from the client before hashing..
What do you think?
Thanks for all the help.
