Interviewer was supportive enough, asked preferred domain. Fortunately for me I was more into Cyber security than anything else and the job role wanted it. 25-30 minute interview, scenario based and other questions on cyber sec. Got asked questions from Java too as I had it in my resume.

Question Examples
>What if both steps in two-factor authentication system has been hacked and a level 3 factor (like biometric) isn’t there. How will you protect the user?
