I agree that Security is maybe too generic, but it generally refers to
Authentication and Authorization Services in the Java Server world. The
feedback I had from AAA is that nobody knows what it means, it's rather
cryptic. In that respect, I'd rather include Security in the name, or
explicitly Authentication and Authorization. 

So I would favor:
1. Apache Security Framework
2. Apache Authentication and Authorization Framework
