Zend Framework is an open source, object-oriented web application framework implemented in PHP 5. Zend framework is modular, secure and easily adaptable. With the new version, dependency of components on each other has been reduced to stabilize it to the maximum possible level. The foundation is well-tested and hence the applications developed are highly efficient. Considering the security aspects, Zend authentication and Zend permission has been introduced to provide user authentication and authorization.
