TLS Alert "insufficient security"

Alban Diquet
Hi there,

I'm trying to connect to a SSL server, but on specific cipher suites, the server sends me an alert "insufficient security", during the handshake.
It's the first time I'm seeing that (and I've played with lots of servers)... 
Anyone knows the exact meaning of that alert ? I'm guessing the SSL implementation on the server is a bit exotic, and uses that alert to reject weak cipher suites, but would like to have someone confirm that.
