  "How secure the network should be.
If a potential problem with the security of the network
connection is found, the user is asked to give input into how the
connection should be handled.

The following values are possible:

`low': Absolutely no checks are performed.
46 47 48 49
`medium': This is the default level, should be reasonable for most usage.
`high': This warns about additional things that many people would
not find useful.
`paranoid': On this level, the user is queried for most new connections.
