IMHO it is one of the main problems that hardly anyone cares about 
telling protection levels apart. "Security" is a really wide spectrum, 
for some beginning at "random six letter passwords". You cannot say in a 
useful sense what is a good recommendation without looking at what is 
needed in the respective situation.

Thus I advocate a standardized set of security levels for data, keys and 
systems. And authentication on the other hand:
