There are sites that are abused by hackers that use scripts to forge the submission of forms pretending to be real users.

One way to make this abuse more difficult is to implement honeypots in forms to detect when a form was submitted by a bot script developed by a hacker.

This package implements honeypots in forms by using special values in hidden inputs.

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

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

The basic purpose is: Generate and check honeypots in HTML forms

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This package can generate and check honeypots in HTML forms.

It can generate HTML form inputs that have special timing values to detect if they are being filled by spammers. The form inputs may be hidden from regular users using given CSS styles.

The class can also perform the necessary checks when the form is submitted to detect if a spammer has changed the values of the honey pot fields.

Notable PHP packages can be often considered innovative. If this package is also innovative, it can be nominated to the PHP Innovation Award and the author may win prizes and recognition for sharing innovative packages.

If you also developed your own notable or innovative packages consider sharing them, so you can also earn more visibility for your package.
