In my recent job search, I noticed many companies wanting highly experienced persons in J2EE security. My experiences with various exams has not given me an indepth knowledge of J2EE security infrastructure.

Would it make sense to add a java/J2EE security expert/architect type exam?

I think it would be something interesting for Sun to look into, especially with the recent trend towards more groups offering security certifications, but the question would probably be one of scope - what would they be looking at? Would it simply be the security mechanisms, or crytography as well, would it involve just Java SE or EE or a combination, or would it touch on ME as well...

Either way, I think that would definitely attract my interest if they offered one.

I would suggest that the cert start out with knowing security configuration settings for JSE/J2EE/JME, also the 10K foot overview of stadards such as SAML, XCAML, ssl, encryption,....

Oh I forgot, also test should cover the top [10,20,50,100] programatic security mistakes that entry level programmers make.
