These are not evil questions...I wish you don't want to sacrifice security..if you are hiring a security professional :-)
Here is my quick five questions on general application security:
1. Identify the fundamental security principles (at least 5) to fortify an application from potential risks and vulnerabilities.
2. How do you identify and mitigate application security risks ? How do you make trade-offs ?
3. What is a security
? Why it has to be considered in application development ?
4. Discuss the differences between Black-box and White-box security
5. How do you perform a proactive security assessment and a reality check before deploying the application ?
If you would like to know the answers...I would suggest to read the Free Sample chapter made available in the book website.
Here is my quick five interview questions on
1. How do you guarantee the integrity and privacy of data and communication from Man-in-the-Middle attack ? What are the J2EE security options.
2. How do you implement a secure logging process which ensures confidentiality and tamper-proof ?
3. What are the security strategies available to protect access to a Java object passed between J2EE tiers ?
4. In J2EE Web services, how do you restrict all direct access to a SOAP endpoint and its WSDL ?
5. How do you incorporate a multi-factor authentication process (Password + Smartcard + Biometrics) in J2EE applications ?
