Need some clarification on Validator

Can anyone please let me know why this Validator is used in workflow transition Opened --> Create state. == 'Draft'|| == 'Issue'|| == 'Enhancement'|| == 'Task'||(( == 'Restricted IP')&& (isUserMemberOfRole('Restricted Members') || isUserMemberOfRole('Administrators')) )|| (( == 'Security IP')&& (isUserMemberOfRole('Security Members')|| isUserMemberOfRole('Administrators')))

When I remove the validator I am able to Create Sub-Task otherwise I am not able to create Sub-Task.

Please let me know why this Validator is used. This is very urgent.
