ConnMan doesn't export that distinction through D-Bus. This is intentional as
we didn't see the benefit of telling a user that his AP does wpa2 or wpa. It's
more confusing than anything else, and from a user point of view, the only
thing you need to care about is the passphrase.

You mean the service security was not modified when you changed it on the AP ?
I don't think we ever intended to support that use case. In which situation do
you see that happening ?
