Description of problem:
The PHP stack in RHEL 8 has libargon2 and libsodium support disabled, which severely cripples or breaks the ability for PHP web applications to do secure password hashing, among other things.
For example, Symfony-based web applications based on Symfony 3.4 can and will use argon2i algorithms, and Symfony-based web applications based on Symfony 4.3 can and will use sodium for this.
Please reconsider and enable support for argon2 and sodium in PHP.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
We are not planning to add additional cryptography libraries into RHEL, sorry.
We are not planning to support additional cryptography libraries in RHEL, hence sodium/argon support will remain disabled in PHP.
