When you want to implement a chat system between users of your application or site, there is always the concern that the messages may be viewed by people that manage the site, or even by spies and secret services because messages may have to be stored in the server before delivering them to the other users in the chat.

One way to avoid this problem is to implement end to end cryptography. This means that messages are encrypted before sent from the origin user and only decrypted by the destination users.

This package provides a solution to implement such approach in PHP. It uses some JavaScript to encrypt messages before sending from the origin user browser using the Blowfish algorithm.

It uses a secret key that only the origin and destination users know about. This way messages may be securely stored on the server database to be able to deliver to the recipient later when he is not online, without the risk of a third party viewing the messages without knowing the secret password.
