    • a CEH v12 Exam Voucher from EC-Council.
    • 6 months of free access to Hands-On Labs
    • eCourseware from EC-Council with course kit .
    • taught by CEI Certified Trainers.

    What are the prerequisites for joining the Ethical Hacking Course?

    Having prior knowledge of networking systems, operating systems, and programming languages such as Python, C, or Java can be helpful before joining Edureka’s certified ethical hacking course.

      How to become CEH Certified?

      To become CEH certified you have to pass the CEH official examination after either attending CEH training at an Accredited Training Center like Edureka or through self-study. Candidates doing self study have to fill out an application and submit proof of at least two years of experience in the network security domain to appear for the CEH official exam.

        What will you learn as part of this course?

        This CEH certification training course provides hands-on hacking experience with the Cyber Kill chain, evaluating target systems for vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and weaknesses, and finding the weakest link in an organization through concepts like social engineering. Learners will learn how hackers operate, what tactics they use, and how to apply those tactics in a professional setting to identify weaknesses in their organization and apply remediation strategies before their organization becomes the next victim of a cyberattack or breach.

          What are the objectives of this Certified Ethical Hacking course?

          The objective of this CEH training is to teach the latest commercial-grade hacking tools, techniques, and methodologies used by hackers and information security professionals to lawfully hack an organization and become certified for building a career out of it.

            Is CEH a hands-on program?

            Yes! Every concept taught in CEH is backed up by hands-on labs hosted in our Cyber Range. The training itself is divided roughly 50/50 into lecture and discussion (50%) and hands-on labs (50%). Additional hands-on practice is available in our labs with objective-based CTF-style flags to challenge your critical thinking and applied knowledge, then reinforced with our practice range, followed by 12 months of live competitions all executed in our Cyber Range, 100% hands-on and applied. We strongly believe that you can’t really learn to hack by reading a book; you must practice. If you are considering CEH, roll up your sleeves and get ready for an intensive hands-on program where you will practice and hone your trade craft as an ethical hacker!

              What does a CEH do?

              CEH is hired by organizations either on contract or as full-time employees to help improve the organization's security posture. CEH is a required baseline certification for many different job roles, but the function of ethical hacking itself involves a methodical practice of identifying, evaluating, testing, and reporting on vulnerabilities in an organization. Ethical hacking course is a broad practice that covers many different technologies, but by systematically applying the methodologies taught in the CEH program, ethical hackers can evaluate nearly any application or infrastructure they are tasked with, identify potential vulnerabilities, and provide recommendations on how those vulnerabilities can be remediated. In the case of military organizations, ethical hackers are highly trained in offensive and defensive activities and possess the critical skill sets and tactics to evaluate target systems and defend their organization's assets in real-time.

                Who is a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)?

                A CEH professional is a specialist typically working in a red team environment designed to attack computer systems and gain access to networks, applications, databases, and other critical data on secured systems. A CEH recognizes attack strategies, the use of creative attack vectors, and mimics the skills and creativity of black hat hackers. Certified Ethical Hackers operate with permission from the system owners and take all precautions to ensure the outcomes remain confidential.

                  What makes this course different from others in the market?

                  The CEH v12 training 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.

                    What are hacking techniques and their technology?

                    Hacking techniques refer to ways and means by which computer programs can be made to behave in ways they are not meant to. These techniques go beyond the technology domain and can be used to test security policies and procedures. Hacking technologies refer to the tools and automated programs that can be used by perpetrators to cause critical damage to an organization. With the advancement of technology, pre-compiled programs are available that make it easier to execute a hack with a simple point and click.

                      Is this CEH Certification course accredited?

                      Yes, Edureka's Certified Ethical Hacking course is accredited by EC-Council.

                        How will I execute the practicals?

                        The practicals are conducted on EC Council-designed Hands-On labs, and you do not need to install anything on your system to execute them.

                                  According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the field of cybersecurity is rapidly growing with projected job opportunity growth of 33%. Globally, there is an insufficient supply of qualified people creating amazing opportunities for CEH in nearly every industry.

                                  The CEH Exam is an ANSI 17024 exam, which means it goes through extensive external validation to ensure the examination itself is fair for the knowledge and experience level of our certification challengers. With the recommendation of 2 years' experience in IT Security or Official training, candidates attempting the exam need to possess strong knowledge in computing systems, networks, and a variety of other IT topics. The examination itself uses Cut-Scores to determine pass/fail results, and cut scores are carefully set by psychometricians who regularly evaluate test question performance and average pass/fail results throughout the life of the program. Reviews from our certification members with limited experience or background have rated our exam as difficult, while more seasoned IT and IT security professionals rate the exam as moderately challenging even after official training.

                                  The exam is a 4-hour scenario-based examination with multiple choice questions. Each question is weighted to the domain and objective and has its own cut score. The exam has multiple forms that rotate with different questions in each form. The cumulative cut score is calculated as the aggregate of all question cut scores. This rotation creates multiple passing score variations based on the exam form you receive. Typical passing cut scores range from 65% to 80%, providing a fair approach to exam performance per ANSI 17024 testing standards. Your exam transcript will show both the cut scores and your achieved score, which will be available immediately after completing the examination.
