How do I obtain an unencrypted password from session for generating a cookie for a 3rd party application?

I am creating a community extension for enabling single signon between Magento and a number of 3rd party applications such as Moodle and eFront.

I am trying to determine a few things that I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction for the best way:

1) Obtain the Magento username and (unencrypted) password from session
2) Is there a particular observer event for:
a) when a user is created in Magento
b) when a user is logged in / out of Magento
c) when a user profile (name, password ,etc) is changed

I searched through the forum and Wiki and came up empty so help is certainly appreciated.

Thank you. Much happiness to you and yours in this Holiday Season!

Hi skippybosco,

I need to find out if I can arrange for Magento to automatically grant access to a Moodle course once access has been purchased. Are you still working on your extension?

Thanks.
