One challenge of applications that need to encrypt information to prevent it to been seen by untrusted parties is that when that information needs to be searched, there is the need to look at the decrypted information to find the relevant records of data.

This package implements a solution that creates indexes before encrypting the information, so the searching components can look at the indexes first before actually decrypting a smaller set of possible records that may contain the information is being searched.

This way the search component does not need to decrypt all database records to check which records contain the information that applications need to find.

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




The package Cipher Sweet 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: Encrypt data in away that can be searched

Here follows in more detail what it does:

This package can encrypt data in away that can be searched.

It can take string of data and a key to create an encrypted version of the data and indexes that can be stored for instance in a database.

Applications can search for the values looking up for index values. Then they can decrypt the data using this package.

If multiple records are found to match the same index value, the applications can traverse a smaller list of records that were found during the search to find the stored records that have the exact value of the key they are searching for.

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.
