    The Authentication Web Service provides a handler interface that needs to be implemented in order for each SASL mechanism to process the requested message and return a response. The class parameter specifies the name of the implementation class for the SASL mechanism. Two authentication mechanisms are supported out-of-the-box by the following classes:

    This class is the default implementation for the PLAIN authentication mechanism. It maps user identifiers and passwords in the PLAIN mechanism to the user identifiers and passwords in the LDAP authentication module under the root organization.
