Salted, SHA256-hashed token generation and checking

Requirements

  • PHP 5.2+ with the Hash extension
  • Hummingbird Lite 3.x or newer

Basic usage

Include the file.

Use getToken() to tokenize your data. It will return an string with the source data and its message digest:

$token = Tokenizr::getToken('something');

You may even pass an array, either associative or not:

$token = Tokenizr::getToken(['foo' => 'bar', 'bar' => 'baz']);

You can then save the token wherever you want. To check it back, use checkToken()

$valid = Tokenizr::checkToken('something.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx');

To get back the data, use getData()

$data = Tokenizr::getData('something.xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx');

Note that the data is saved in plain sight, THIS CLASS IS NOT DESIGNED TO ENCRYPT DATA. The purpose of this class is to provide a way to check if the data (from a cookie, for example) has been generated by your code and not forged. The checksum is reliable as long as you NEVER DISCLOSE YOUR SALTS.
