Security is a big field. As with just about everything, the more you know, the better. Since you're posting in the servlet forum I'm assuming you're interested in web security. The Tomcat FAQ has some information on how to set that up, and the Security FAQ has some more general stuff.

"Hellkay hellkay",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.
