Mask Sensitive Data With the PHP Masked Package

Mask Sensitive Data With the PHP Masked Package

Fuko\Masked is a small PHP library by Kaloyan Tsvetkov for masking sensitive data by replacing blacklisted elements with a redacted value.

Here’s an example of the basic usage from the package’s readme:

use Fuko\Masked\Protect;

// hide the value inside the $secret_key var
Protect::hideValue($secret_key);

// hide the value of $_POST['password']
Protect::hideInput('password', INPUT_POST);

$redacted = Protect::protect($_POST);

Based on the above calls, the blacklisted values and inputs will be masked. Another example from the readme is a debug blacklist, similar to Laravel 5’s Whoops blacklist:

use \Fuko\Masked\Protect;

Protect::hideInputs(array(
    INPUT_ENV => array(
        'APP_KEY',
        'DB_PASSWORD',
        'REDIS_PASSWORD',
        'MAIL_PASSWORD',
        'PUSHER_APP_KEY',
        'PUSHER_APP_SECRET',
        ),
    INPUT_SERVER => array(
        'PHP_AUTH_PW',
        'APP_KEY',
        'DB_PASSWORD',
        'REDIS_PASSWORD',
        'MAIL_PASSWORD',
        'PUSHER_APP_KEY',
        'PUSHER_APP_SECRET',
        ),
    INPUT_POST => array(
        'password',
        )
    )
);

// Passing info through `\Fuko\Masked\Protect::protect()`
// will mask the blacklisted inputs.
\Fuko\Masked\Protect::protect($_POST);
