When it comes to your application: I don't know how tech-savvy you are, and I'm not sure if you're worried about someone breaking into your webapp, but you could look into setting up security extentions like snuffleupagus (PHP) and SpiderLab's ModSecurity WAF for Apache and nginx for which OWASP has a great, free ruleset
Snuffleupagus 0.7.0 is released, with PHP8 support
1 project | reddit.com/r/netsec | 3 Jan 2021
snuffleupagus is pretty cool, I highly recommend looking at the default rules if you're wondering what it's capable of: https://github.com/jvoisin/snuffleupagus/blob/master/config/default.rules There are some things in there that you might not know about php yet!3 projects | reddit.com/r/PHP | 2 Jan 2021
No, it's a module that hooks into php functions and offers some general harding (like refusing to execute files that could be written to by www-data) and allows more fine-grained control over disable_function, like setting filters/rules for some arguments. The default config shows how to mitigate certain bypasses for regular php.ini based hardening: https://github.com/jvoisin/snuffleupagus/blob/master/config/default.rules3 projects | reddit.com/r/PHP | 2 Jan 2021

One of the Golden Rules of Computing is "Never roll your own Crypto" (without a PhD in Cryptography). If you need to encrypt something at rest I'd recommend the really very excellent Halite Library.
PASETO v2.0.0 released! (Lengthy release notes)

10,000%. I love Halite.
PHP.Net Documentation for ext/sodium Coming Soon
2 projects | reddit.com/r/PHP | 10 May 2021
Excellent job! I've been using the https://github.com/paragonie/halite library on top of Sodium just so I don't have to re-work everything out, but this is going to be nice for cases when including third party libraries isn't possible!
