Adam Englander, @adam_englanderCryptography is the invisible layer protecting everything around us. As software engineers, we are required to have some understanding of cryptography. PHP makes strong cryptography available and fairly simple to utilize. What PHP does not often do is help us understand which extensions, functions, and options to use for our software. In this presentation, we will dive deep into the essence of how cryptography works as it relates to encryption, digital signatures, and hashing. We’ll also cover the PHP extensions that provide those functions and how the different functions and options can be utilized to provide strong cryptography.
