I spoke with the Host about the motivation behind the security people checking badges.

They have hosted other (but smaller) conferences, and they have provided security at those meetings.  They have had experience with people trying to enter the meetings who were not authorized participants 
in the meeting.  

Yesterday, 3 people were stopped by security and upon examination it emerged that they were not paying attendees but rather using the credentials of other people.

They are also concerned about the theft of equipment throughout the meeting, not just the terminal room.  They are very embarrassed by the theft of an AP from the Terminal Room.  However, as every place else, the IETF arranges for security for the Terminal Room after hours, which was when the AP was taken. So it was not their responsibility.

They are not there enforcing local law.
