Val:
In almost all of the modern (that is, less than 9 months old) books that I have on JSP/Servlets (that does not exclude the slightly older ones), the issue of security is discussed. I personally have not had to delve into the topic, but my recommendation is that you get one of those first. If you already have, good start...

They can initially have some cryptographic login. If it's a secure transaction then SSL is used. Also, if they are going to keep credit card numbers for accounts then these would be encrypted and stored. I don't know if you can say anything for carts in general - I think different business processes will have different requirements.
