WHY IS CEH IN-DEMAND GLOBALLY?

With the CEH v11 we’ve taken all that the CEH already is and added more to it, to make it even better, more advanced, more detailed, and yet succinct.

In 2003, CEH introduced the five phases of ethical hacking, the blueprint for approaching your target and succeeding at breaking in. We have continued to hone these 5 phases, updating and refining them to match the skillset ethical hackers need today:

  • Reconnaissance
  • Gaining Access
  • Enumeration
  • Maintaining Access
  • Covering Your Tracks

CEH v11 covers more than 500 new threats and vulnerability scenarios. This includes but is not limited to: APT, Fileless Malware, Web API Threats, Webhooks, Web Shell, OT Attacks, Cloud Attacks, AI, ML, and much more.

We work to deliver only the latest technologies, but also emerging technologies such as OT Technology, Container Technology.

Practice what you learned. Understand how knowledge can be transformed into skills and how these skills can be used to solve business issues with hands-on hacking challenges at the end of each module to reinforce what you’ve learned!

With the new Parrot OS, you have everything you need to develop your own programs and protect your privacy while using the internet. You will enjoy better performance on lower powered laptops and machines with an intuitive interface and a larger repository of tools.

CEH v11 now includes the latest Malware Analysis tactics for ransomware, banking and financial malware, IoT botnets, OT Malware Analysis, Android Malware, and more!

About The Exam

Number of Questions: 125
Test Duration: 4 Hours
Test Format: Multiple Choice
Test Delivery: ECC EXAM, VUE
Exam Prefix: 312-50 (ECC EXAM), 312-50 (VUE)
Passing Score:

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 analyzed 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 rigor 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%.

About The Program

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 become an EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (E|CSA) or proceed with the CEH (Practical).

Retake exam requests can only be purchased by writing to feedback@eccouncil.org, should a candidate fail the exam.

Exam Policies

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. For more details, please click HERE.

To be eligible to apply to sit for the CEH (ANSI) Exam, a candidate must either:

  • Hold a CEH certification of version 1 to 7,

* (Prior to being ANSI accredited, EC-Council’s certifications were named, based on versions – CEHV1, CEHV2 etc. During that time, candidates that attempted the certification exams were vetted for eligibility. In order to avoid “being double bill”, the EC-Council Certification department shall issue a waiver of the application fee of any candidate that has a CEH V1- CEH V7 certification and wishes to attempt the CEH ANSI certification.)

  • or Have a minimum of 2 years work experience in InfoSec domain (You will need to pay USD100 as a non-refundable application fee);
  • Or Have attended an official EC-Council training (All candidates are required to pay the $100 application fee; however, your training fee shall include this fee)

 

Note:

  • As the price of an exam vouchers is many times bundled with official training by our accredited partners, the price may vary depending on the region, training facilities, training partner, the trainers experience, cost of proctoring the exam and even the mode of training of the partner.
  • It is imperative that we make it clear that no student shall be deemed to have any added advantage whatsoever from one mode of training to another in order to challenge the CEH ANSI exam as the exam is a standard exam for everyone, regardless of the method of training.
  • Should any training partner attempt to tell you otherwise, we ask that you lodge an official complaint with the EC-Council certification department so that the necessary action can be taken against the training partner.

On an average, application processing time would be between 5-10 working days once the verifiers on the application respond to EC-Council’s requests for information.

No, the $100 application fee is not refundable.
