I have a few questions:
1. What are the recommended sites/book for learning security?
2. Which all topics are to be covered under security?
Thanks.
Vibha.

Check out the links page for this forum: SCEA Links.
This topic of the exam does not warrant a separate book purchase, though you will definitely benefit professionally from learning more than is required by the exam. I only got 2 questions on security on my exam (missed 1 D'oh!) so even if you don't know much about the topic it won't dramatically affect your score.
For the actual topics covered by the exam check here. Like most objectives in the exam, it is pretty open ended on the interpretation.

Most questions will relate to applet security. (http://www.x-nt.org/10.html)
On the network side, you should have an awareness of things like firewalls/DMZs/port numbers/tunnelling.
I purchased the IBM Java Security book & wouldn't recommend it as a prerequisite to getting SCEA.

The Sun's java tutorial has a nice section on security.
