This looks good.
For maximum pedantry, you might note that the base64 encoding used
MUST NOT contain whitespace (which RFC 4648 says is the default
anyway) and MUST set padding bits to 0 (which RFC 4648 says
applications MAY require).
These requirements mean that the resultant base64 from any given
input has precisely one form, and so can be used for direct
comparison. Implementations MAY choose to decode the base64 and
compare hashes directly (and if you mandate this, then you can skip
the para above).
