Application Login for DDPClient.NET


So, I know that DDPClient.NET exists for writing DDP-based applications using stuff like Visual Basic and C#, but my question is…is it possible to authenticate to the app and/or create an account from the desktop application, as opposed to the web instance of my Meteor app using this framework?

Will I have to author a method or something to handle the login process and manually transmit encoded data that’s hashed via SHA256 or something? From what I’ve tried to google regarding this issue, that seems like the only way to go?
