Vault - a secure value storage (data-at-rest) implementation for Laravel. It can be used directly, or attached to Laravel models. When attached to models it stores the values of the attributes securely in the Vault's table. The attributes in the model's table only contain the corresponding identifiers referencing the Vault's table.


composer require sinevia/laravel-vault

Table Schema

The following schema is used for the database.

Id String, UniqueId
Value Long Text
CreatedAt DateTime
DeletedAt DateTime
UpdatedAt DateTime

How to Use

1. Migrations

  • 1.1. Add the migration file to your database/migrations directory

class VaultTablesCreate extends Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration {

     * Run the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function up() {

     * Reverse the migrations.
     * @return void
    public function down() {        

  • 1.2. Run the migrations to create the Vault's table
php artisan migrate

2. Using Vault Directly

  • 2.1 Store a value to the vault. If successful, will return the Vault id, that the value was securely stored under
$vaultId = \Sinevia\Models\Vault::storeValue($value, $password);
  • 2.2 Retrieving the value using the Vault id it was stored under, (see the example above).
$value = \Sinevia\Model\Vault::retrieveValue($vaultId, $password);

3. Using Vault with Models

  • 3.1. Vault Key

Create a new class app/Helpers/App with method vaultKey. The function should return a string with the key for securing your values. Do not lose your key, or you will not be able to restore your values

  • 3.2. Add the VaultAttribute trait to the model
use \Sinevia\Vault\VaultAttributeTrait;
  • 3.3. Specify the attributes to be used with Vault
class ExampleModel {

    use \Sinevia\Vault\VaultAttributeTrait;
    public function getUsernameAttribute($value) {
        return $this->getVaultAttribute($value);
    public function setUsernameAttribute($value) {
        return $this->setVaultAttribute('Username', $value);
  • 3.4. Use the vaulted attributes
$exampleModel->Username = 'test';
