Quick start

Required setup

The easiest way to install this library is via Composer.

Create a composer.json file and enter the following:

    "require": {
        "coreproc/crypto-guard": "0.*"

If you haven't yet downloaded your composer file, you can do so by executing the following in your command line:

curl -sS | php

Once you've downloaded the composer.phar file, continue with your installation by running the following:

php composer.phar install


Basic Usage


require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Coreproc\CryptoGuard\CryptoGuard;

// This passphrase should be consistent and will be used as your key to encrypt/decrypt
// your string
$passphrase = 'whatever-you-want';

// Instantiate the CryptoGuard class
$cryptoGuard = new CryptoGuard($passphrase);

$stringToEncrypt = 'test';

// This will spit out the encrypted text
$encryptedText = $cryptoGuard->encrypt($stringToEncrypt);

// This should give you back the string you encrypted
echo $cryptoGuard->decrypt($encryptedText);
