While doing some research about other obfuscation techniques I stumbled upon an implementation based on Donald Knuth’s integer hash. This unbelievable small and fast algorithm will generate random-like integers with the ability to convert them back to the original value. This technique was so cool that I decided to create a PHP package for it called Optimus.
