How can I decipher the next code, or how can I know what I need to decipher

Looks like base64

Can't manage to decode it =(, I believe it's enctrypted with JSON, I really don't know. The thing is that I got that from a cookie.. I believe that cookie is placed with JSON.., it changes everytime I reload the page. I'm trying to find a way to change the cookie in order to validate the session... I already have access to that section, but I wanted to know just for security and learning purposes.


thank you for your help.

I don't think you know what JSON is.

No, I dont. But I was hoping to get some help, I have experience only in java, javascript, php and sql. I know JSON has something to do with JQuery but still have not managed to understand fully. Any help would be great.

JSON is similar to XML and is a way to organize information. It's not a way to encrypt something. I'm sure there are better articles online to explain more about JSON.

So that... is just a session coded by CodeIgniter. What I don't understand is what you're trying to gain by decrypting it?
