Authentication Integration

edited June 2009 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
Currently, the Vanilla forum will be in an intranet environment.
The intranet software has it's own user authentication system to allow the user to login.

What I would need, is for when the user is logged into the extranet, the user is also logged into the vanilla forum. Neither authentication databases use plain text, and intranet uses md5($password+$salt) to hash. What does vanilla use?

how could this be achieved?

    Just seen that vanilla uses md5 alone to encrypt passwords.

    The current version of Vanilla uses phpass for encryption. MD5 sucks for passwords and Vanilla will automatically convert any password stored as MD5 in its database.

    hmmm ok.

    How would I go about integrating it in to my web application?
