Hi,

few days ago I read about PHP incorporating a modern crypto lib now:
> https://dev.to/paragonie/php-72-the-first-programming-language-to-add-modern-cryptography-to-its-standard-library

Not a specialist regarding this, but wouldn't it be possible to interface
such?
> https://github.com/jedisct1/libsodium

@Lagi: The first customer already called to ask if I'd use "this security
risk" - thanks "LibHash-Hmac" (Richard posted the URL) I could deny
plausibly :)
Even if I agree with you about the real risk, it would be very bad idea not
to update any commercial software now. It might even have juristic
consequences, knowingly using broken crypto?

Anyway. Have fun!
