Authorization * Authenticate(String* challenge, WebRequest * request, ICredentials* credentials)
      String* message;
      // Check if Challenge String* was raised by a site which requires 'CloneBasic' authentication.
      if ((challenge == 0) || (!challenge->StartsWith(S"CloneBasic")))

         myCredentials = dynamic_cast<NetworkCredential*>(credentials);
      // Message encryption scheme :
      //   a)Concatenate username and password seperated by space;
      //   b)Apply ASCII encoding to obtain a stream of bytes;
      //   c)Apply Base64 Encoding to this array of bytes to obtain our encoded authorization message.

      // Apply AsciiEncoding to 'message' String* to obtain it as an array of bytes.
      Encoding*  ascii = Encoding::ASCII;
      Byte byteArray[] = new Byte[ascii->GetByteCount(message)];
      byteArray = ascii->GetBytes(message);

      // Performing Base64 transformation.
      message = Convert::ToBase64String(byteArray);
