openssl_pkcs7_encrypt

Encrypt an S/MIME message (PHP 4 >= 4.0.6, PHP 5)
bool openssl_pkcs7_encrypt ( string infile, string outfile, mixed recipcerts, array headers [, int flags [, int cipherid]] )

openssl_pkcs7_encrypt() takes the contents of the file named infile and encrypts them using an RC2 40-bit cipher so that they can only be read by the intended recipients specified by recipcerts.

Parameters

infile
outfile
recipcerts

Either a lone X.509 certificate, or an array of X.509 certificates.

headers

headers is an array of headers that will be prepended to the data after it has been encrypted.

headers can be either an associative array keyed by header name, or an indexed array, where each element contains a single header line.

flags

flags can be used to specify options that affect the encoding process - see PKCS7 constants.

cipherid

Cipher can be selected with cipherid.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.

ChangeLog

VersionDescription
5.0.0 The cipherid parameter was added.

Examples

Example 1674. openssl_pkcs7_encrypt() example

<?php
// the message you want to encrypt and send to your secret agent
// in the field, known as nighthawk.  You have his certificate
// in the file nighthawk.pem
$data = <<<EOD
Nighthawk,

Top secret, for your eyes only!

The enemy is closing in! Meet me at the cafe at 8.30am
to collect your forged passport!

// load key
$key = file_get_contents("nighthawk.pem");

// save message to file
$fp = fopen("msg.txt", "w");
fwrite($fp, $data);
fclose($fp);

// encrypt it
if (openssl_pkcs7_encrypt("msg.txt", "enc.txt", $key,
   array(
