Plain SASL Mechanism Handler

The Plain SASL Mechanism Handler performs all processing related to SASL PLAIN authentication.

The PLAIN SASL mechanism provides the ability for clients to authenticate using a username and password. This authentication is very similar to standard LDAP simple authentication, with the exception that it can authenticate based on an authentication ID (for example, a username) rather than requiring a full DN, and it can also include an authorization ID in addition to the authentication ID. Note that the SASL PLAIN mechanism does not make any attempt to protect the password.
