Hey guys. I'm in college as an Information Systems major. Thing is, it doesn't focus on computer security. I'm a total n00b at computer security. So my questions to you guys are listed below.

Where do I start?

What resources are good to use?

Other advice?

The SecurityFaq points to a number of places that provide overviews of specific areas, and also tell you how that ties into the Java landscape (the "Java Security Evolution and Concepts" articles).

I'm a big fan of Bruce Schneier's writing, so I'd say start with the podcast that's linked there, and then maybe the book Secrets & Lies. That'll provide the big picture that tends to get lost amid all the arcane technical details of implementing digital security.
