X SERVICE: ILL-BOR-AUTH does not work when verification and user ID contain both ampersand and dot. If only one is present, it works, if both are present, error message is generated.
Error in Verification is received
Should authenticate the user with ampersand and dot in user ID and verification
The problem here is not the combination of the characters "@" and ".". The problem is the length of the verification. In the example - firstname.lastname@example.org, the verification is too long for the encryption. Although the string is shorter than 20 characters, the encryption of this string that includes the "@" and "." is more than 20 bytes long and this is why it fails.
Instead of the example :
we tried :
which was successful as the string is short. This is system limitation which cannot be changed.
