OK, so if I specify 

security tls=128

then I am guaranteed to get at least 128 bits of encryption for ALL access,
TLS, or am I mistaken? Or would this require 128 bits no more no less? 
If that's the case, is there a >= function?

I see! So it's a literal equals... This explains a lot.

OK, I was misunderstanding what is meant by ssf. It is now clear.

Thanks for your help.
