PHPVault allows you to encrypt and compress any PHP appliaction to prevent users from easy access to source code and to disallow easy modifications. Additionally application may be limited to run only under specified domain names or only on hosts with specified MAC addresses present in system. Additional licensing options are planned to be added in future.
To run encrypted code it is required to add PHPVault loader extension to your PHP installation. Currently loaders are available only for Linux hosts and only for x86 and x86_64 architectures. In future we plan to add more architectures like ARM and also support Windows hosts. Supported PHP versions are: 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2 and 7.3.
Our project is currently "work in progress". First versions of encoder and loader are being tested for several months now. We are still enhancing our product by adding new features and fixing bugs. When we will decide that it is ready for release we will make it available for any developer wishing to use it.
When PHPVault will be available?
It is far too early to give any specific date. We hope to make first release in 2019.
Will PHPVault be free to use?
Basic version will be free. For advanced features license will be required.
What will be price tag of licensed version?
Unfortunately its too early to say what licensing options and models will be available, what features they will cover and how much they will cost, but we definitely want our software to be affordable to every developer.
Will my encrypted source code be absolutely safe?
No. As long as code can be run it can also be decrypted. Skilled person can access source code no matter of what encryption strength, algorithms and techniques are used. Our goal is not to make source code inaccessible, but to make it harder to access and to give developers control over their appliactions with various licensing options.
I have other questions...
Just take a word 'contact', add the 'at' sign and our domain and send us an e-mail :-)
