The following tutorial is designed to explain and define the various options available in:

Administration panel >> General >> Forum >> Security

Security Options in detail

Confirm Password
If you log into your admin panel, you will be prompted again to confirm your username and your password, even if you are already logged in as admin.

Auth Dialog Box
Displays an additional authentification popup box where you have to confirm your username and the password when changing a setting in your admin panel or when you visit your admin panel.

Disallow "Send by email a new password"
If this option is set to YES, administrators and moderators can't use the function "I forgot my password" anymore.

Disallow Moderaotors to ban members
Pretty much self-descriptive - if set to YES, moderators are not able to ban members anymore.

Allow Moderators to see hidden users
Defines if mods can see the username of hidden users. If this option is set to NO, moderators will, as any other member or visitor, just see in the "who is online" field that there is one hidden user online.

The last three options are permanently activated security features. You can't deactivate them.
