The reason this was deprecated in 1.5R4 is that it never worked as 
advertised, only the portion regarding restrictions on which classes 
scripts can access worked properly and it continues to be supported in

You probably need to look at the new ClassShutter interface as well as 
it represents the working portion of the old SecuritySupport API.

Rhino 1.5R4 does not use the security setting property any more and has 
explicit API to set ClassShutter or SecurityController on Context 
instances and continues to support the old setScuritySupport methods, 
but they can be called only once per Context.
