Download the PHP package paragonie/easyrsa without Composer

On this page you can find all versions of the php package paragonie/easyrsa. It is possible to download/install these versions without Composer. Possible dependencies are resolved automatically.


After the download, you have to make one include require_once('vendor/autoload.php');. After that you have to import the classes with use statements.

If you use only one package a project is not needed. But if you use more then one package, without a project it is not possible to import the classes with use statements.

In general, it is recommended to use always a project to download your libraries. In an application normally there is more than one library needed.
Some PHP packages are not free to download and because of that hosted in private repositories. In this case some credentials are needed to access such packages. Please use the auth.json textarea to insert credentials, if a package is coming from a private repository. You can look here for more information.

  • Some hosting areas are not accessible by a terminal or SSH. Then it is not possible to use Composer.
  • To use Composer is sometimes complicated. Especially for beginners.
  • Composer needs much resources. Sometimes they are not available on a simple webspace.
  • If you are using private repositories you don't need to share your credentials. You can set up everything on our site and then you provide a simple download link to your team member.
  • Simplify your Composer build process. Use our own command line tool to download the vendor folder as binary. This makes your build process faster and you don't need to expose your credentials for private repositories.

Informations about the package easyrsa


Build Status

Simple and Secure Wrapper for phpseclib.


For better security, you want to use libsodium, not EasyRSA.


Although the long-term security of RSA is questionable (at best) given the advances in index calculus attacks, there are many issues with how RSA is implemented in popular PHP cryptography libraries that make it vulnerable to attacks today.

Thanks to the folks who developed phpseclib, it's possible to use secure RSA in PHP. However, it's not user-friendly enough for the average PHP developer to use to its full potential. So we took it upon ourselves to offer a user-friendly interface instead.

EasyRSA is MIT licensed and brought to you by the secure PHP development team at Paragon Initiative Enterprises.

How to use this library?

composer require paragonie/easyrsa

Generating RSA key pairs

You can generate 2048-bit keys (or larger) using EasyRSA. The default size is 2048.

Getting the Raw Key

Encrypting/Decrypting a Message

Signing/Verifying a Message


EasyRSA is only compatible with itself. It is not compatible with OpenGPG (GnuPG, Mailvelope, etc.) You'll want GPG-Mailer instead.
