Ethical Hacking has been a lucrative career option. It’s a challenging job that never gets boring, pays well and also brings a greater sense of achievement. 

Most ethical hackers begin their career as tech support engineers who climb their way up, by earning certifications like CCNA and CISSP before working towards the ultimate CEH certification. After earning your CEH certifications, it is time to market yourself as an ethical hacker!

An ethical hacker also should have a good grasp of the following skills:

  • Network traffic sniffing

  • Orchestrate various network attacks

  • Exploit buffer overflow vulnerabilities

  • SQL injection

  • Password guessing and cracking

  • Session hijacking and spoofing

  • DNS spoofing
