Learn Spring Security: The Master Class

The definitive video guide to secure your Java application

  Buy The Course

The canonical reference for securing a Spring application.

The 15 modules cover everything from the basics of Spring Security in an MVC application to advanced use-cases such as understanding attack vectors, proper password storage and risks, API security with OAuth2 and full Java config.

In addition to the framework guides, you'll also do deep-dives into full working security implementations. You'll do a complete ACL implementation for applications that simply need to go beyond the roles and privileges.
You'll tackle Two-Factor Authentication to add extra security to our apps. We're going to drive that with a soft-token, a hardware token and finally with SMS.

And of course you'll dive deep into OAuth2 security for a REST API, understand the right grant types to use in each scenario and how to set them up with the framework.

This is everything I wish I had access to when I secured my first application with Spring Security.


If you're looking for the new Certification Class (which includes this class), you can find it here.

And if you're looking to get access to this course together with REST With Spring, have a look at the combined package.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the Master Class include the other classes?
Yes it does - it includes all modules. When you purchase the Master Class, you'll get access to everything and you don't need to get anything else.
What kind of access do I have to the course?
The courses are hosted online, so access doesn't expire. You can also re-watch the lessons as many times as you like (and most students do watch them multiple times).
How do I watch the lessons? Can I watch at my own pace?
Yes! When you purchase a class you’ll be enrolled into your course account and you'll have immediate access to all modules and lessons within. The platform will keep track of your progress as you finish each module so you can pick up where you left off at any time.
Do I have to wait until the Master Class goes live to get access?
No - you'll get access to modules as I release them - you won't have to wait for material that's already available.
Will there be code I can download/use/follow along with?
Yes. We're going to be building a couple of applications during the course, and the code will be fully available both on GitHub as well as for download.
What version of Spring Security is the course based on?
The code is using Spring Security 4.1 and Spring 4.3. I am also keeping a close eye on the official JIRA for any issues that may be relevant in the next version.
Is Spring Boot a hard requirement?
No, not for the most part. There will be some Spring Boot specific lessons, but these will be extra and specifically marked. The general approach is simple - you won't need Boot, but if you want to learn about it and use it, there will be plenty of Boot lessons as well.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I believe strongly in the quality of the course and I've put a lot of work and care into the material. I also know that you putting these tactics to work in your application can mean the difference between sub-par security and an air-tight application. I confidently back all my courses with a 30-Day Money Back Guarantee. I want you to dive in deep and experience the material without any concern.
Can I please get a discount?
I never run discounts or coupons for my courses. The reason is simple - this would be unfair to all existing students who bought the courses at full price.
