A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of a target system(s).

The Certified Ethical Hacker program is the pinnacle of the most desired information security training program any information security professional will ever want to be in. To master the hacking technologies, you will need to become one, but an ethical one!

The accredited course provides the advanced hacking tools and techniques used by hackers and information security professionals alike to break into an organization. As we put it, "To beat a hacker, you need to think like a hacker".

The International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC-Council) is a member-based organization that certifies individuals in various e-business and information security skills.

What does it take to earn this certification?

In order to maintain the high integrity of our certification exams, EC-Council Exams are provided in multiple forms (I.e. different question banks). Each form is carefully analysed through beta testing with an appropriate sample group under the purview of a committee of subject matter experts that ensure that each of our exams not only has academic rigour but also has real world applicability. We also have a process to determine the difficulty rating of each question. The individual rating then contributes to an overall cut score for each exam form. To ensure each form has equal assessment standards, cut scores are set on a “per exam form” basis. Depending on which exam form is challenged, cut scores can range from 60% to 85%.

Frequently asked questions

You’ve got questions & we’ve got answers

EC-Council places great emphasis on the quality of its instructors. A 17-year-old will not be teaching security to professionals at our accredited training centres. Certainly, experience is the greatest teacher. However, EC-Council adheres to a code of ethics and encourages security professionals with significant years of teaching experience in the industry and a security background to handle our security related programs.
The program focuses on hacking techniques and technologies from an offensive perspective. This advanced security program is regularly updated to reflect the latest developments in the domain, including new hacking techniques, exploits, automated programs as well as defensive recommendations as outlined by experts in the field. The CEH body of knowledge represents detailed contributions from security experts, academicians, industry practitioners and the security community at large.
EC-Council believes in giving back to the security community as it has partaken of it. When you are a Certified Ethical Hacker, you are more than a security auditor or a vulnerability tester or a penetration tester alone. You are exposed to security checklists that will help you audit the organization’s information assets, tools which will check for vulnerabilities that can be exploited and above all a methodology to assess the security posture of your organization by doing a penetration test against it. In short, the knowledge you will acquire has practical value to make your work place a more secure and efficient one.
Consider this: A security defense programeducates candidates regarding proper configuration, firewalls, or rather pre-emptive security. CEH takes the alternative approach – defense in depth by attacking the systems. This is in sharp contrast to programs that teach defensive tactics alone. CEH imparts offensive tactics supplemented with defensive countermeasures. This ensures that the CEH professional can have a holistic security perspective of the organization.
Hacking techniques represent ways and means by which computer programs can be made to behave in ways they are not meant to. These techniques extend beyond the technology domain and can be applied to test security policies and procedures. Hacking technologies are used to refer to those tools and automated programs that can be used by perpetrators against an organization to incur critical damage. As technology advances, the skills required to execute a hack are much lesser as pre-compiled programs are available to effect havoc with simple point and click.
Congratulations on becoming a CEH! You have joined an elite group of professionals around the world. Your next level is to proceed with the CEH (Practical).
The answer is yes. You must show 2 years of work experience in security related field. You must also submit a CEH exam eligibility application and obtain an authorization from EC-Council before you can attempt the exam.
