The SASL mechanism handler configuration entry is the parent for all SASL mechanism handlers defined in the OpenDJ directory server.

SASL mechanism handlers are responsible for authenticating users during the course of processing a SASL (Simple Authentication and Security Layer, as defined in RFC 4422) bind.
