I've the need to export user and hashed password from tbl_user to a new custom developed CMS.

I'm not here to ask how to reverse the password !

I'd like only to know the steps, given a plain password, to create the SAME IDENTICAL password used by wordpress (4.7)

Is this possible? Is the algorithm available?


First: Be aware that this is pluggable in WP so first of all check that you're site is using the default implementation.

Then have a look at wp_hash_password and wp_check_password in pluggable.php and the PasswordHash class. There you should find what you are looking for.
