Mobile App authentification using Jumela DB

Post by Kaillens » Thu Apr 11, 2019 1:52 pm

I am here today because I have a problem creating an authentication system using Joomla DB.
The situation is as follows:

On a mobile application, I need to create an authentication service using the same database as a Joomla site.
Only, the passwords of the database are encrypted. So my application must encrypt the passwords in the same way.
And, I manage to find php functions related to authentication. But I can not find the place where the files are stored to allow me to encrypt a password.
I can not match the password entered by the user and the one encrypted in the database.

I was wondering how it was possible for me to authenticate myself from my application to the Joomla database without having to recode the encryption.

Thank you in advance.
