453. Notable PHP package: PHP SMS Queue System

One way to send SMS messages without depending on third party APIs is to use the Gammu program. It can communicate with a mobile phone connected to your machine and sends SMS messages from the phone to whatever recipients you want.

This method of sending SMS messages may not be particularly fast, especially when you have to send many SMS messages, as it has to wait for one message to be sent, to send the next message.

This class provides a solution to prevent that your PHP application needs to wait for each SMS message to be delivered before it can send the next one.

It uses local message queues to post the messages. A separate script can pull each message from the queue and send it by communicating with the mobile phone using Gammu.

451. Notable PHP package: PHP Ignore JSON Key

JSON is nowadays used by many applications and APIs to exchange data in a format that can be supported by many languages.

Sometimes you need to do some processing to filter unwanted entries in JSON data structure. Usually you would use json_decode parse the data, traverse the parsed data and filter the unwanted information, and regenerate it with json_encode.

This class offers a simpler solution. It can take a JSON string and removed the unwanted entries from the JSON string directly.

448. Notable PHP package: PHP Form Encryption

When you need to submit security sensitive data to a Web site, you should always use encrypted connections. However, over time older SSL versions have been discovered to be vulnerable, to the point that SSL is not longer synonym of security.

Nowadays you should use at least TLS and we don't know until when the current TLS versions will be safe to use to protect the transmission of private data.

This class provides an additional layer of security by using JavaScript to encrypt data before transmitting form values using RSA public key, and then having the server to decrypt the data with a private key.

This way, eventual man in the middle attacks will not be able to decrypt the data because they don't know what is the private key that the server uses to decrypt it.
