Package: PHP Keyak
The Keyak algorithm goes farther than many other algorithms by providing means to also authenticate the encrypted data.
This allows the recipient of the encrypted data to verify the authenticity of that data when it tries to decrypt the encrypted data that was received.
This package implements a pure PHP based solution to implement the Keyak algorithm to encrypt and decrypt data.
