    <Directory "/var/www/html">
      PythonAccessHandler  security
      PythonDebug On

Change the name of your handler in 'security' from 'handler'
to 'accesshandler'. If your handler in that file is returning a
complete response by setting req.status and then returning
apache.OK, ensure you return apache.DONE instead.
