 I recently came to know GWAS has been converted to STAR WAS. That
 means it is not a certification any more.  Would STAR WAS still hold
 the same weight as GWAS? I find hard to believe so.

STAR WAS is a movie, and I think the GWAS were those little guys in
the first movie.  Not the ewoks.  These little guys had guns and
seemed to know how to use them to defeat larger opponents in the
Tatooine desert.  There were also technologically superior to most
other races throughout the series, although I don't think they had
warp power.

The only certifications that hold any weight are CISSP, CISA, and
CISM.  I always thought the NSA IAM/IEM certifications were also more
technically geared to penetration-testing type work.

 Is there any alternate Application Security certification?

How about QPASP?

Cheers,
Andre
