Hi,
Could someone point me to some useful resources for this section? (especially section 6.1)

6.1 Identify correct descriptions or statements about the security issues:
* authentication, authorization
* data integrity
* auditing
* malicious code
* Web site attacks

Thanks in advance,
Prasanna.

Prasanna,
I found chapter 8 "Security" in the book Java Servlet Programming by Jason Hunter very helpful for this section. A good synopsis of the chapter can be found in Miftah Khan's Servet Notes in the SCWCD links page of this message board.
Regards,
Clark

Thanks Clark.
I had almost forgotten that I had a copy of Java Servlet Programming by Jason Hunter, because I have the 1st edition, and it is almost useless as a reference for the SCWCD exam as it covers the 2.0 spec.
I went through the 8th chapter on Security and found it useful. But what I probably need is a complete code example with deployment descriptor, which could illustrate the security issues, and how to utilize them.
Miftah Khan's notes does not talk about
* Malicious code
* Web site attacks
Any suggestions are welcome.
Thanks in advance,
Prasanna.
