Site Security

Unless you use SSL, a user logs into Joomla sending his password in plain text across the network. A malicious user could take advantage of this vulnerability and can have access to the back-end.
This plugin is an alternative to SSL. It uses RSA to encrypt passwords or any other data you want in your component.
It is necessary to have the bcmath extension

  • Get this

Works with Signal Login, JTP Horizontal Login, PWC Login, Inline Login and vtj login modules.

For other Joomla extensions, like Alpha Registration, Community Builder, Core Design Login Module, Yoo Login, YJ Pop Login Module you can find plugins at http://www.ratmilwebsolutions.com/downloads/encryption-plugins.html.

No need to set up. Just install it and install the required plugins.

When summer sets in and you want to work on joomla sites using wifi while sitting inthe sun, this is the component that keeps out sniffers that want to get at your login data.

I was often shocked how many providers do not offer encrypted connections - or at a much too steep price! With this extension, at least the Password is encrypted (or even more?). Thank you.

Even though this is no support forum, I might have a guess at why @rockett had troubles uninstalling: Uninstall the component, not the plugin! (plugin is uninstalled automatically) That should perhaps be mentioned more prominently after installation.

but with removal there were problems - many files and it is a headache.

it would be possible to make the uninstall button also

Since I do not have a SSL certificate loaded for my site, I always logged on with in my mind: Password goes unencrypted over the network. And look what I found: An alternatieve encryption method. Using this, I finally after all these years made my login process quite a bit safer.

Thanks for this easy to install and easy to use extension. This one should everybody install who doesn't have SSL! Really!

Simple and efficient

Does what it says its author, without complications.

Very effective. recommended


Owner's reply: Hi, gnumax.
Thanks for the review and also for the article at webempresa.
It was you I guess.

Work with native Joomla forms and with many external login modules. You can try to make encrypted any form if fact, just check out docs.

Unfortunately does not support BT Login extension yet.

But anyway great way to protect passwords and SSL alternative.

Owner's reply: Hi, metaflow.
I still have integration with BT Login in my todo list.

This one is a must for every site. It works nicely in the background and hopefully avoids any attacks via the passwords. One more barrier against the jokers on the net who are intent on destroying your work. Thanks very much.

Great SSL alternative,really easy to use! I use it for my site for over a year now and it really helped keep my website secure! I am very thankful for this great free extension and can recommend it to anyone looking to top up security on their joomla site.

Great extension!

Perfect solution for our needs. We are now running this on every website we have. Thank you so much for your hard work on this extension!

Great little extension

This extension is great and the support for it superb. I used it because I was getting reports of clear text passwords being visible in the html code being returned from the server. As a newbie I wasn't sure where to start but I wanted to ensure that passwords were encrypted so that security was not compromised even if other user details were returned.

My initial results were disappointing as I was using the extension with a combination of registration and login options including JomSocial. When I reported the problems they were addressed quickly. Passwords are now secure from the browser all the way through the system.

The root cause of the underlying problem (other user details returned)turned out to be the system-cache plugin and the original problem went away once that was disabled. But I will continue to use this encryption extension to provide an added level of security - increasingly important with the growth in wireless based connections.

"R Antispam" is the only Joomla antispam extension for forums (Kunena, NinjaBoard and ccBoard) that uses a Bayesian algorithm. This means that spam recognition is improved over time. It can be adapted to prevent spam in other extensions. It works better if integrated with Akismet. You can get an akismet key at akismet.com. And if you think that you have to pay for a key, better look again and you will find that you can get it for free. The extension adds a reference to the developer's site, but you can remove this in configuration.

Digital Market is like many other paid downloads manager component but what makes it stand out from the rest is the following features: • Possibility to upload documents from front-end. Any user (depending on permissions set by administrator) is able to upload a file, even guests, and set a price for it. Any other user who tries to download the file will be asked for payment. This means that you can define what user groups are able to upload and sell files on your site. • Definition of permissions on actions for managing the component based on ACL. In other words you can specify who does what. The permissions you can grant include download a file, upload, change price for a file, change currency of the price, download file without paying or use HTML editor for setting the description of a file. Demo version doesn't support payments but it can be used as a download/upload manager as long as you set items prices to zero or you allow "free download" to all users.
