Auth plugins have lots of duplicated code

Bug Description

Core authentication plugins (e.g. XMLRPC, SAML and LDAP) have a significant amount of duplicated code which could lead to certain checks not being performed correctly.

We should look at refactoring some of it to make these plugins more robust and easier to maintain. It will also make it much easier for contrib plugins that have to extend the same API.
