In a world where security is paramount, there is a need to secure sensitive data that is stored with PHP applications on the file system. This data may include passwords, and other sensitive type data that should never be stored in plain text. Zend_Crypt_Xml is a class that allows encryption of nodes of an XML document. This would be typically used to encrypt credentials in a configuration file. This class will then allow this encrypted data to be decrypted at run-time. This means that plan-text passwords are never stored anywhere, including on the filesystem and in revision control systems.

Zend_Crypt_Xml is a class that allows encryption of nodes of an XML document. This would be typically used to encrypt credentials in a configuration file. This class will then allow this encrypted data to be decrypted at run-time (in memory). This means that plan-text passwords are never stored anywhere, including on the filesystem or in revision control systems.
