Hi Andy,

Thanks for your reply.

This means that they have accepted your asylum claim and you will be granted leave to remain. The subject to security part simply means that they will check in the UK to see if you have any criminal record here since you arrived, they may also check to see if you are bankrupt and possibly also check to see if you have a criminal record in your country of origin.

If those checks come back fine (if you are not bankrupt and have never been convicted of a crime then you will be fine) then it is common for them to grant you indefinite leave to remain. However, they do sometimes grant time limited leave to remain for 5 years at the end of which you will be free to apply for indefinite leave to remain.
