Version 10.2 of the ionCube PHP Encoder is the industry standard solution to protect PHP scripts, making it quick, simple and easy to protect your PHP source code from observation, theft and change.
The ionCube Encoder compiles sourcecode to bytecode, can obfuscate and encrypt compiled code if desired, and has features to protect decryption keys in various ways, including a unique approach of algorithmic non-stored keys we call Dynamic Keys.
In addition, PHP licensing features built into the Pro and Cerberus editions allow PHP scripts to be licensed, restricting where PHP code can run and whether it has an expiry time.
The PHP Encoder is available for Windows, Linux, FreeBSD and macOS, all editions feature command line Encoders for easy automation, and the Windows and macOS Encoders also include a GUI.
ionCube Encoded files can be used on the most widely used operating systems up to PHP 7.4. Support for other platforms is available on request.
