PHP Encoders?

G' Day Guys,

Just wondering if any coders have a good recommendation for a php encoder?

Thanks for your help,

Sincerely,

    Depends if you are encoding purely for protection or for speed?

    Zend, Ioncube are great for speed and protection but are pretty expensive. If you are just looking for protection and control over distribution then you may want to look at CodeLock.

    CodeLock V2.0 - The PHP / HTML script and code Encryptor

    That is a great little system that helps coders like me protect their stuff.

    Hope that helps...

    Since I am most likely going to add encription to parts of my software soon I have done some research on what forms of php encription are available and how secure they are.

    Zend is easy to break. Virtually all torrent sites have one of the many programs which can break Zend encoding. The same for Codelock, SourceGuardian, and most other forms of encription.

    While not completely impossible to break, Ioncube is currently the best option if you are wanting to protect your code. From the research I have done there are currently no programs widely available which can break Ioncube. There is one website that advertises it can break the code for a fee, but so far I haven't seen any programs which anyone can download. Not saying there aren't any, but I haven't been able to find any in the research I have done.

    Hi Paul,
    Best 2 products on the market that can not be decoded. All others that I have seen can be decoded.

    PHP Encoder, protection, installer and performance tools from ionCube: Home

    PHP Development & Production Software - PHP Tutorials Training & Certification - Learn PHP - Zend.com

    Personally I use ioncube which is just as good as zend only does not have that huge price tag that zend does.

      James,

      Zend can be decoded. I have a program on this computer that can decoded Zend right now. Go to any torrent site and you can find the DeZender program. Zend was broken several years ago and right now you can easily decode Zend for PHP 4 and PHP 5.

        This depends upon what developer you are dealing with .. Again I personally use ioncube but I go way beyond just encryption but I would rather not release my trade secerts in a public forum ...lol

        I can do things such as encryption changing code, yes the encryption style changes automatically. I have been in this business long enough to know how to protect what I build especially since I have scripts currently on the market that are valued at more than $35,000

    Is there an encoder available that doesn't require additional setup for the end user?

      Hi Mark,
      Yes ioncube does not require anything from the user.. When you encrypt the script you include the loaders for it. Upload the script and install, the end user does not need anything.

      Ofcourse they need a server and a upto date one would be recommended
