Client Sided PHP Security Tool
Posted 30 August 2006 - 12:53 PM
while i whas working on a login script for my forum, i stumbled upon a term called packet sniffing.
if you send your password in plain text or unecrypted then somebody could just read it!.
so i thought well then ill use the MD5 or swordfish hashing function to make it safer.
and then to send it over the internet to the database.
but since php is sever sided this is gonna be a problem for me.
i dont know JS or any other client sided programming language.
so here is my question.
is it possible to make a encryption tool with the PHP programming language that will encrypt the password on the client side.
are there php compilers on the internet?
and if there are!
are they any good for using these with encryption methods???
thanks in advance.
