PHP Encoder 9.0

With the ionCube Encoder, you can...

  • Protect PHP scripts with compiled bytecode for best performance and protection.
  • Use optional encryption keys that are not stored but generated only when needed (Dynamic Keys). Our unique feature gives greatly increased protection over alternatives that store a decryption key in the protected file or that do not offer encryption at all.
  • Produce encoded PHP files to run on the latest PHP 7 and earlier.
  • Use PHP language features up to PHP 5.6.
  • Encrypt non-PHP files such as XML and templates.
  • Generate license files to restrict access to encoded files (Pro/Cerberus editions).
  • Enable one way transformation (obfuscation) of variables and function, method and class names.
  • Encode PHP shell scripts.
  • Prevent file tampering through use of digital signatures.
  • Prevent replacement of encoded files by others.
  • Generate files to expire on a given date or after a time period (Pro/Cerberus editions).
  • Restrict files to run on any combination of IP addresses and/or server names (Pro/Cerberus editions).
  • Restrict files to run on specific MAC addresses (Cerberus edition).
  • Integrate with the ionCube Package Foundry.
  • Add readable comments to encoded files for custom copyright, license details etc.
  • Have custom messages and custom handling when files expire or aren't permissioned to run.
  • And more!

The Windows and OS X versions also include a powerful Encoder GUI. The GUI is easy to use, offers high-speed encoding, and is packed with features to maximise your productivity and simplify product deployment.
