Google Authenticator PHP class

Build Status

This PHP class can be used to interact with the Google Authenticator mobile app for 2-factor-authentication. This class can generate secrets, generate codes, validate codes and present a QR-Code for scanning the secret. It implements TOTP according to RFC6238

For a secure installation you have to make sure that used codes cannot be reused (replay-attack). You also need to limit the number of verifications, to fight against brute-force attacks. For example you could limit the amount of verifications to 10 tries within 10 minutes for one IP address (or IPv6 block). It depends on your environment.

Usage:

See following example:

<?php
require_once 'PHPGangsta/GoogleAuthenticator.php';

$ga = new PHPGangsta_GoogleAuthenticator();
$secret = $ga->createSecret();
echo "Secret is: ".$secret."\n\n";

$qrCodeUrl = $ga->getQRCodeGoogleUrl('Blog', $secret);
echo "Google Charts URL for the QR-Code: ".$qrCodeUrl."\n\n";

$oneCode = $ga->getCode($secret);
echo "Checking Code '$oneCode' and Secret '$secret':\n";

$checkResult = $ga->verifyCode($secret, $oneCode, 2);    // 2 = 2*30sec clock tolerance
if ($checkResult) {
    echo 'OK';
} else {
    echo 'FAILED';
}

Running the script provides the following output:

Secret is: OQB6ZZGYHCPSX4AK

Google Charts URL for the QR-Code: https://www.google.com/chart?chs=200x200&chld=M|0&cht=qr&chl=otpauth://totp/infoATphpgangsta.de%3Fsecret%3DOQB6ZZGYHCPSX4AK

Checking Code '848634' and Secret 'OQB6ZZGYHCPSX4AK':
OK
