- Title: The Sodium crypto library of PHP 7.2
- When: Saturday, May 12 at 12:00 p.m.
- Presenter: Enrico Zimuel
- Abstract: The Sodium crypto library (libsodium) is a modern, easy-to-use software library for encryption, decryption, signatures, password hashing and more. Sodium has been added to PHP 7.2 as core extension. In this talk we will show how to use Sodium in PHP projects to solve common problems, like how to store the users’ password, how to encrypt/decrypt sensitive information, how to authenticate user’s data, etc. We’ll also present some of the advanced features of libsodium like authenticated encryption, anonymous public-key encryption, and elliptic curve cryptography.
