Does Fuel still use phpseclib besides for legacy (en/de)cryption in Fuel v1.8.1+?
  • Poking through the code since the 1.8.1 update, it looks like phpseclib is only used in Crypt in case of legacy (en/dec)cryption/(en/de)coding needs. Is this correct?

  • Thanks for the answer!

    So can it be assumed that in 1.9 and beyond phpseclib would be deprecated? And it would be encouraged to use sodium for any hashing, symmetric, and asymmetric encryption needs going forward?
  • Yes, it is much more secure, the old Crypt encryption could be broken with sufficient GPU power.

    And in PHP 7.2+, Sodium support it is built-in.
  • Its fixed I had not need to crypt, md5 filename is ok.


    hey, I just switched to 1.8.1 and I have:
    ERROR - 2018-06-07 10:57:11 --> Error - hex2bin() only expects hexadecimal characters in /opt/fuel-1.8.1/vendor/paragonie/sodium_compat/src/Core/Util.php on line 343

    I see in my code :
    \Crypt::encode it supposed to create the error ? I dont see any sodium replacement in doc ?

  • Release docs haven't been updated online yet, so see

    And no, it is not supposed to do that, but without a backtrace it's difficult to pinpoint a cause.
  • thanks Harro
