EC-Council's Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures (CEH) covers concepts and tools related to exploiting systems, networks, devices and operating platforms. This includes hacking concepts such as vulnerability assessment, network intrusion, reverse engineering, defacing websites, damaging network appliances, launching distributed denial-of-service attacks, massive worm propagation, breaking passwords, brute-forcing authentication systems, cracking encryption, exploiting systems, advance viruses, Trojans, and other malware. This certificate is targeted at site administrators, security professionals, auditors and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure.
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 CEH credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.
This Certified Ethical Hacker v8.0 video training course with James Conrad covers how to legally protect against hacker security breaches, including virtualization, reconnaissance, footprinting, social engineering, scanning, sniffing, cryptography, and more.
