writing to wp database to insert users from 3rd party app - password encryption (1 post)

    Hello, I have searched everywhere for an answer to this question.
    I am writing a plugin for aMember. I will be using aMember to manage all my blogs paid members. aMember needs a plugin that will let it write to the wordpress database. the problem I have is taking the plain text password from aMember and writing it into wordpress.
    I am unsure how to correctly convert it from plain text to md5 with the secret key. I have read about "salted passwords" but I am still unsure.
    I know how to do it with md5 alone, but not using md5 and the secret key.
    I assume that the secret key is added to the password before encryption using md5 but I dont know if this is correct.

    Thanks in advance for your advice.
