better SASL mechanisms than PLAIN are:

  • DIGEST-MD5
  • SCRAM-SHA1

Every server should offer (or even require) secure connections over TLS. The connection gets secured in XMPP always before the user gets authenticated.
That beeing said, the authentication is always on a secure channel. With stringer SASL mechanisms like the above you have strong security on 2 different layers,
