Licensed Moral Hacker (CEH) Certification – Is It As Awesome As It Appears?

I know, several of us would adore to have that title. Most of us, if not all, at some position of time preferred to find out hacking and mastering it in excess of the world-wide-web is one particular factor, to be recognised as a single is an one more.

So again in Could, the CEH training course was staying supplied by V-ITMI at Quatres-Bornes. Considering that I was free of charge and on vacations just after passing my HSC and waiting around for university to begin, I paid for the training course. The overall service fees were Rs42, 500 including the exam fees. Evidently the courseware itself expenses all around rs27, 000 and it consists of 4 DVDS of tools assembled above the world-wide-web, a Linux backtrack CD (Linux are living CD) and some pdf notes of the other chapters that are not coated by the instructor and is not examinable. It also has 5 massive textbooks that you will will need to learn right before likely for the examination, a mouse pad and a pen. There have been no entry needs as extensive as you adhere to the course from an EC-Council Accredited Education heart. Even so, if you want to skip the class and go for the test only, you will will need a created evidence from your firm stating you have at the very least 2 years’ knowledge in the stability industry. You will then sit for the EC0-350 paper although I did the 312-50 paper but both of those is the very same paper and you will get hold of the exact same title, i.e., CEH.

The class:

The initial day, I had the satisfaction to satisfy my Coach, Mr. Franklin John from India. He is a incredibly clever guy and the initial CCIE safety I have at any time fulfilled. He came all the way from India specifically to produce the course at v-itmi. The course’s period is 5 consecutive days from 9AM to 5PM and it is actually really quick. You simply cannot adhere to every little thing that the coach is indicating and he has a time timetable to complete the system, so, he moves alongside slide to slide pretty swiftly and mastering every form of hacking attacks ( Session hijacking, DDOS,DOS,linux hacking, buffer overflows, sql injection and so on) in this small volume of time is pretty much unachievable.You do have breaks at 3 intervals: a tea break, tea, coffee and biscuits were being served, a lunch break and a tea split once again in the afternoon.

Just about every of the students experienced a particular laptop or computer the place you will be expected to do live demos/testing of the equipment supplied to you in the CD. These resources are tested on a Windows Server 2000 Progress with no patches set up. Why? Since without the patches, the windows server 2000 is incredibly vulnerable and you can use any instruments on it: most of them is going to perform. I know that you are imagining,” what the heck? It is useless, who even takes advantage of windows server 2000? “Of course, I was upset much too for the reason that the tools will not perform on Home windows XP and over (With all the patches/protection fixes put in). Nonetheless although, you will have an plan of how hacking is accomplished and you will grasp the idea of the forms of assault that is executed with are living demos supplied by the instructor.

5 times were being rapidly more than and at the end you will need to submit an on line responses of how the program was, the competency of the trainers and so on.

The examination:

Now, time for the exams. I went for the examinations right after a thirty day period or so mainly because I was also preparing for my CCNA & VCP test. The exam’s cost is integrated in the courseware that you bought. Nevertheless, if you fall short the test, the next time, you will have to bear the price. The exam consists of 150 multiple selection queries and is 4 hrs extended. The MCQ queries change. Some may have only just one reply while other individuals may well have up to 3 or even 4. The concerns in the examination had been not completely what I examine from the guide. I would say 80% of them have been in the book but the remaining, some personal understanding and logic is essential. I finished the test in 3 hrs and 30 minutes and I passed! I was definitely delighted for the reason that 1) This is my very first ever certification and 2) the identify is so awesome.

But definitely, was it value it? Rs42, 500 for a thing out-dated: Nicely, I am not so sure. I would have somewhat opted for ISC2 protection certifications. Having said that, CEH was a good experience in the perception that, it is the only study course out there that will teach you ‘hacking’ with stay demos. It was entertaining, I confess.

After a month, my welcome package at last arrived. It consisted of 1 certification, a single welcome letter and one particular major sticker with Certified Moral HACKER published on it. Also, you will have entry to the official CEH logo which appears unprofessional in accordance to me and a one of a kind code is presented to you where by you will have access to a certified member’s portal where by CEH all all around the environment share suggestions, go over something etc.

If you are contemplating about performing a certification in the security industry, I would recommend Security+ as a start off and a security certification from ISC2 later on on. More aspects in this article (

All the most effective!
