Nowadays sites use SSL/TLS to establish secure connections between the users browsers and the servers.

Some sites that use backend servers are connected from front-end servers without any security protection, thus allowing possible theft of information in transit by inflitrated malicious software.

This package provides a more secure solution to protect data that is exchanged between front-end and back-end servers by encrypting and decrypting the data with secure keys.

Read this article to learn more details about how this notable PHP package works.




The package sapient is one of the few PHP packages that was considered notable recently because it does something that is worth paying attention.

This package add a security layer to server to server requests.

It can work with both Request and Response PSR-7 compliant objects by implementing security features like:

- Shared-key encryption
- Shared-key authentication
- Anonymous public-key encryption
- Public-key digital signatures
- Sends and receives signed or encrypted JSON
