How to remotely sign in to Vanilla via PHP POST, etc?

edited February 2012 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8

Hi, I am presently developing a mobile application for iOS in which I would like to integrate Vanilla Forums as a backend. Is there any way that I could pass a username and password input from within my mobile application to Vanilla via PHP POST, http post/request, json, etc. or some other functionality? This would be helpful as it would prevent the user from having to log in twice to the mobile app.

I would like to somehow dynamically sign the user in, but am having a hard time finding the right file in Vanilla's web directory structure that is used to process/accept login information normally passed through the Vanilla Sign-in form. I am guessing it is a PHP file and is similar to an HTML form with a PHP backend to verify the login credentials.

Can someone please point me to some documentation and/or the specific file in Vanilla's web directory where I can find this info?
