Computer Network Security Profession…Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)….

November 13, 2010

The International Council of E-Commerce Consultants (EC- Council) administers this certification. It validates the ability of a candidate to perform what is known as ethical hacking.

This certification requires the candidates to take a CEH course at an authorized facility and provide proof of attendance as part of the process. The stated reason for this requirement is that it protects the value of the certification.This class will immerse the student into an interactive environment where they will be shown how to scan , test , hack , and secure their own systems. The lab intensive environment  gives each students in depth knowledge and practical experience with the current essential security systems. Students will begin by understanding how perimeter defenses work and then be lead into scanning and attacking their own networks; no real network is harmed. Students learn how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system. Students will also learn about Intrusion Detection , Policy Creation , Social Engineering , DDos Attacks , Buffer Overflow and Virus Creation. When a student leaves this intensive five day class , they will have hands on understanding and experience in Ethical Hacking.

The CEH Program certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective. The Certified Ethical Hacker certification will fortify the application knowledge of security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, 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 the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker.

In future , maybe in the next 5 years , I’m considering to wanna take this certification , if my financial is good. I encourage whoever wants to involved in computer security field , to take this course. I have a friend in Unites States , Mubix , says that he take CEH and then become a penetration tester in US…with a good income….The course is only take about 5 days , and here in Malaysia , we can take it at EC Council in Phileo Damansara.The fees i think is about RM5,500.00.
