security

Discussions of secure PHP coding. Security in software is important, so don't be afraid to ask. And when answering: be anal. Nitpick. No security vulnerability is too small.

This is too broad a question.

Security is not a few lines of code added to your project. Tell us what you are trying to and we might be able to give you some suggestions.

A better approach might be to read a book on the subject, try the book by Ilia, the Guide to PHP security: http://www.amazon.com/php-architects-Gu ... 0973862106

Imo it is more a mindset than just some code

I think what you're asking for is a secure encryption method that will allow you to safely store information in a database? (try rijndael-256)
Or perhaps something like mysql_real_escape_string() which will help make sure attackers can't use mysql injection?
Or strip_tags() to prevent php injection?

That's about it off the top of my head...
