3 – security

Laravel Security was created by, and is maintained by Graham Campbell, and is a port of the security class from CodeIgniter 3 for Laravel 5. This package is best used wrapped in my Laravel Binput package.



PHP 5.5+ or HHVM 3.6+, and Composer are required.

To get the latest version of Laravel Security, simply add the following line to the require block of your composer.json file:

"graham-campbell/security": "~3.2"

You’ll then need to run composer install or composer update to download it and have the autoloader updated.

Once Laravel Security is installed, you need to register the service provider. Open up config/app.php and add the following to the providers key.

  • 'GrahamCampbell\Security\SecurityServiceProvider'

You can register the Security facade in the aliases key of your config/app.php file if you like.

  • 'Security' => 'GrahamCampbell\Security\Facades\Security'


Laravel Security supports optional configuration.

To get started, you’ll need to publish all vendor assets:

$ php artisan vendor:publish

This will create a config/security.php file in your app that you can modify to set your configuration. Also, make sure you check for changes to the original config file in this package between releases.

There is one config option:

Evil attributes

This option ('evil') defines the evil attributes and they will be always be removed from the input
