Description Author

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.

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.

honeypot

This PHP library is used to manage honeypots in HTML forms. It will create the input form and do the necessary checks.

Installation

Recommended

Go to you project root directory and use composer using this command

composer require dominiquevienne/honeypot

Then create your application bootstrap using this kind of code

<?php
require __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

$oForm  = new Dominiquevienne\Honeypot\Form();
echo $oForm->inputs();

Manual installation

  • Download latest stable release on Github
  • Uncompress the downloaded file
  • Place content into your project
  • Use similar code to load object `php <?php require __DIR__ . '/honeypot/src/Honeypot.php'; require __DIR__ . '/honeypot/src/Form.php';

$oForm = new Dominiquevienne\Honeypot\Form(); echo $oForm->inputs();

### Laravel
Using honeypot in Laravel is as simple as a

composer require dominiquevienne/honeypot

and add the following lines in your class

<?php use \Dominiquevienne\Honeypot\Form;

class yourController { public function show() {

/ some code of yours */
$oForm  = new Form();
return $oForm->inputs();

} }

### Drupal 8
First of all, go to your root directory of your Drupal 8 project and type

composer require dominiquevienne/honeypot

In the Form controller (where you build your form), add

use Dominiquevienne\Honeypot\Form;

in order to gain access to Honeypot Form constructor.

Instantiate your form using the ``drupalForm`` config array key set to ``TRUE``

Checks are done in the validate function using standard functions. 

## How it works
Once the package is installed the honeypot consists in enabling two steps
### Form rendering
Where you will trigger Form::timeCheck() which will store date-time of the Form rendering and trigger Form::honeypotInput() used to return the honeypot form element. 

Any of those two options are mandatory. 

<?php $oForm = new Dominiquevienne\Honeypot\Form(); $oForm->timeCheck(); $honeypotInputs = $oForm->inputs(); ?> <html> <?php // All your HTML code before your form ?> <form action="yourLandingPage.php" method="post"> <?php // The standard fields of your form echo $honeypotInputs; ?> <input type="submit"/> </html>

Be aware that you'll need to hide the honeypot field. To do that, you'll have three solutions
- use CSS (default class is hide)
- remove the element from the DOM using JS (Pure Javascript, jQuery or other). This is already done by using default function ``$oForm->inputs()`` or by using ``$oForm->getHoneypotScript()`` which would return a script in pure javascript that would remove the honeypot field from the DOM. 
### Form action page
Before you do the real job in your script of the landing page of your form (`action` attribute of Form element), you will have to use this code

<?php $oHoneypot = new Dominiquevienne\Honeypot\Honeypot(); $checks = $oHoneypot->checks(); if(!empty($checks)) { die('Your are a spammer'); } // your code

## Available configuration
When you create the object, you have the ability to pass config values through an array. 

<?php $config = [ 'honeypotInputClass' => 'myCssClass', 'honeypotInputNames' => [

'name1',
'name2',

], 'formMethod' => 'GET', ]; $oForm = new Dominiquevienne\Honeypot\Form($config);

### Form
#### honeypotInputMask
This is the mask used to render the input field. You can use Form::getHoneypotInputMask() to get the current value. 
#### honeypotInputClass
This is the CSS class used on the honeypot input field. 
#### honeypotInputType
This is the HTML type of the input field
#### honeypotInputName
Way to force a specific name
#### honeypotInputNames
Array containing a list in which honeypot will take a random name followed by a hash. 
#### formMethod
HTTP Method used to send the form
### Honeypot
#### minFormCompletionTime
Time in seconds under which a form subscriber will be considered as a bot
#### maxFailureAttempts
Quantity of accepted failures per session before considered as a bot. When the number is reached and failureCheck is ON, every attempt will be considered as a failure during all the session lifetime. 
#### maxAttempts
Quantity of accepted attempts per session before considered as a bot. When the number is reached and quantityCheck is ON, every attempt will be considered as a failure during all the session lifetime. 
#### checks
Array of checks to be made when submitting form. By default, checks are ```['timeCheck','honeypotCheck','tokenCheck','failureCheck','quantityCheck']```
#### drupalForm
If set to ``TRUE``, ``Form::inputs()`` will return a Drupal FAPI array instead of raw HTML
