Data Encryption Workflow

Posted 3 years ago by stueynet

This is sort of a continuation of this thread which was successfully answered: https://laracasts.com/discuss/channels/laravel/encrypting-model-data

I need to understand more about the management and philosophy of managing an app with encrypted data being stored in the database. The answer of the EncryptableTrait literally works great as long as the key NEVER changes. But what happens if the key does change? Or if it is compromised? How do you reconcile multiple keys over time? What is the process exactly?
