Hardening PHP with Suhosin
May 28, 2008 @ 08:47:22

PHPFreaks.com has a new tutorial posted that looks to help you protect you and your application with an even greater level of security by using the Suhosin patch.

Suhosin is a great and simple way of increasing your security without having a large impact on overall performance. In this tutorial I will cover the installation and configuration of Suhosin on both debian etch and centos 5. I may cover mod_security in a later tutorial.

They apt-get the packages needed for the patch in examples for two different distributions - Debian (etch) and CentOS. They also show how to set up some basic configuration to get the patch installed and working with your PHP installation.
