The network protocols used by Oracle can encrypt and/or checksum data
transfers between Oracle library calls in PHP's oci8 extension and the
database server.

The useful bits are at the bottom of that page where the sample
sqlnet.ora files are given (just above tables 3-2 and 3-3).  In effect
all you need to do is add a couple of configuration lines and restart
the network listener to get encrypted traffic. Check your license too:
the Advanced Security Option (ASO) is probably a separately licensble
