A question about password encryption

I am preparing to create a few web applications. Currently, we have a Vanilla forum set up, and we want to be able to use the same password across the spectrum for all of our services.

I am preparing to write a login screen for the other services (The first one will be a sort of profile page) using Django. I want to use the existing username/password pairs that are stored in the database for Vanilla. To do this I need to know how they are encrypted so that I can do proper comparisons for authentication.

I have started digging through the Vanilla code, but it is a little complicated (the framework doesn't make digging so easy, and I am not great with PHP). :-)

Any suggestions on this topic would be very appreciated.

Even a pointer to which files are involved in authentication would be a help. :)
