The PHP Secure Communications Library contains LGPL-licensed pure-PHP implementations of arbitrary-precision integers, fully PKCS#1 (v2.1) compliant RSA, DES, 3DES, RC4, Rijndael, AES, SSH-1, SSH-2, and SFTP. This book discusses how to use them.


You can find the original PHPSecLib documentation here.

FuelPHP Usage

The PHPSecLib vendor package is used by FuelPHP in the Crypt class, to generate secure hashes, and in the Auth package, which uses PBKDF2.

Application Usage

For use in your application the PHPSecLib package has been converted to a namespaced, autoloader friendly library. You can use it directly from your application.

 * Example controller that does an SSH login

class Controller_Ssh extends Controller
	public function action_index()
		// connect to my server
		$ssh = new \phpseclib\Net\SSH2('');

		// login
		if ( ! $ssh->login('username', 'password'))
			throw new \Exception('ssh login failed');

		// return the view that formats the directory list
		return View::forge('ssh/dirinfo', array(
			'pwd' => $ssh->exec('pwd'),
			'info' => $ssh->exec('ls -la'),
