Using Nova DB for external authentication

So I'm in the process of trying to create a quasi-SSO type setup between Nova2 & Wikimedia so users can use their Nova login on wikimedia. I've got Wikimedia talking to Nova but what I don't have is how Nova hashes passwords.

Looked all over the place but can't seem to find the underlying code that does the password hashing. Where is it hiding?

The Auth class (Nova_auth.php in case you're searching) has a hash method where you can see how Nova salts and hashes the password.

Appreciate that. Found the code.

Unfortunately the project got shelved for now as Mediawiki 1.27 dropped the API I was using to experiment with external authentication in favor of a new one I have to learn going forward.

If you end up getting something working, let me know. We can always create something on the Help Center with instructions on how to do that for people.
