How to encrypt string without mcrypt library in php. Key to encrypt string without mcrypt libraly in php. The same resulst as mcrypt_encrypt and mcrypt_decrypt. As of PHP 7.1, the php-mcrypt was deprecated. And as of PHP 7.2 it was completely removed. This is a problem, since a number of server software titles still depend upon this encryption tool.

I'm looking for a simple yet cryptographically strong PHP implementation of AES using Mcrypt. Bentley jp principles of measurement systems pdf printer.

Hoping to boil it down to a simple pair of functions, $garble = encrypt($key, $payload) and $payload = decrypt($key, $garble).

I'm recently learning about this subject, and am posting this answer as a community wiki to share my knowledge, standing to be corrected.

It's my understanding that AES can be achieved using Mcrypt with the following constants as options:

During encryption, a randomized non-secret initialization vector (IV) should be used to randomize each encryption (so the same encryption never yields the same garble). This IV should be attached to the encryption result in order to be used later, during decryption.

Results should be Base 64 encoded for simple compatibility.



Output looks like this:

Add function to clean control characters (�).
