gEncrypter PHP class - v1.0

Waht the class does - Main features

Functions in the class


function gMA()

@return mixed the array of the new alphabet

Creates a new alphabet depending on the key provided.

The process is something like the following:
Consider the key $key = "ilarvet"

The program creates an array using as indexes the chars of the key and assigns to them the first letters of the alphabet, without any double char

So the conv array will be
$conv = array(
"i" => "b",
"l" => "c",
"a" => "d",
"r" => "f",
"v" => "g",
"e" => "h",
"t" => "j"

Then sobstitutes corresponding letters looking up for them into the conv array
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
d ? ? ? h ? ? ? b ? ? c ? ? ? ? ? f ? j ? g ? ? ? ?

Assigns the already-known chars
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
d i l a h r v e b t ? c ? ? ? ? ? f ? j ? g ? ? ? ?

Assigns to each letter its opposite in the sequence, avoiding already assigned chars
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
d i l a h r v e b t z c y x w u s f q j p g o n m k

We now have a new alphabet!


function gED($string, $key)

@param string $string the text to encrypt/decrypts
@param string $key the string to use to encrypt/decrypt
@return string the string encrypted/decrypted

Encrypts or decrypts datas depending on a certain key

Makes a new alphabet depending on the key provided then replaces each char in the text with its corresponding in the new alphabet.

Please NOTE this function encrypts AND decrypts; this mean if the text passed to it is already encrypted using this system and the same key, it will return the original one, else it will return a text encrypted two times using two DIFFERENT keys and you'll need two decryption to get the original text back.

If the text passed to the method isn't ecnrypted yet, it will return the text encrypted once. The same thing happens if you use a key which match the sequence of the original alphabet.

Examples of use

Example #1

Takes a string, encrypts it (printing the result); then prints the string decrypted plus the key used include_once('gEncrypter.php');

$string = "Hello! You can use any char you like, but please avoid the unsupported. You can also type in UPPERCASE words!!! Incredible, huh?";

$key = "ilarvet";

$e = new gEncrypter();

echo $enc = $e->gED($string, $key); // Prints the encrypted data
echo "
echo $dec = $e->gED($enc, $key); // Prints the original data, decrypted
echo "
echo $e->key; // Prints the key used to encrypt/decrypt


No changes made since now.
