Requirements

  • PHP 5.4.0 or newer
  • OpenSSL extension (built-in by default)
  • Hash extension (built-in by default)
  • Enabled output buffering (output_buffering=1 or output_buffering=On in php.ini)

Usage

Plain PHP

<?php

$secret = "reallylongsecretplease";
$handler = new VladislavYarmak\StoragelessSession\CryptoCookieSessionHandler($secret);

session_set_save_handler($handler, true);
session_start();

$_SESSION["key"] = "value";

Symfony

framework:
    session:
        handler_id:  session.handler.cookie

services:
    session.handler.cookie:
        class:     VladislavYarmak\StoragelessSession\CryptoCookieSessionHandler
        public:    true
        arguments:    ['reallylongsecretplease']

Handler constructor parameters

CryptoCookieSessionHandler($secret, $expire = 2592000, $digest_algo = "sha256", $cipher_algo = "aes-256-cbc", $cipher_keylen = 32)
  • $secret - secret passphrase used for HMAC signature and encryption
  • $expire - expiration time of HMAC signature
  • $digest_algo - hash algorithm used for key derivation and cookie signature. See hash_algos() for all available message digest algorithms.
  • $cipher_algo - cipher algorithm used for session contents encryption. See openssl_get_cipher_methods() for all available ciphers.
  • $cipher_keylen - proper key length for specified cipher algorithm, used for encryption key derivation
