Best encrypting method

Question

What is the best encrypting method in terms of speed and security? Is this 1) Use the PHP Encryption library with the openssl extension (highest security) or 2) Use Rijndael with the openssl extension.

Good question. To avoid such questions, removing two of the three algorithms is planned anyways. Unless PHP encryption turns out to be measurably slower than the others, it'll be the algorithm in the future, relieving merchants from the burden of making a choice.

I think there is no real preference for one or another. All three work fine.

Changing the algorithm is simple as well, it just logs out all customers and employees. They can log back in immediately, no need for changing passwords or such stuff. Shop visitors won't even notice.

Thanks for the detailed explanation. I will just leave it with PHP Encryption library 🙂
