Spring Security Tutorials

In this detailed Resource page, we feature an abundance of Spring Security Tutorials!

Spring Security is a Java/Java EE framework that provides authentication, authorization and other security features for enterprise applications. The project was started in late 2003 as ‘Acegi Security’ (pronounced Ah-see-gee, whose letters are characters 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 from the English alphabet, in order to prevent name conflicts) by Ben Alex, with it being publicly released under the Apache License in March 2004. Subsequently, Acegi was incorporated into the Spring portfolio as Spring Security, an official Spring sub-project. The first public release under the new name was Spring Security 2.0.0 in April 2008, with commercial support and training available from SpringSource.

  • Spring MVC Application with Spring Security Example
    In this example we will demonstrate how we can implement Spring-Security to secure our web-application. We shall discuss and demonstrate both Authentication as well as the Authorization aspect of an application’s security.
  • Spring Security with Maven Tutorial
    In this post, we shall demonstrate how to use Maven dependencies for Spring Security for very specific use-cases. The latest versions of all the libraries we use can be found on the Maven Central. Understanding how Maven dependencies work and are managed is important in a project for an effective build cycle and clear concepts about what versions match between various libraries we use in our project.
