About the Certified Ethical Hacker Certification
The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) credential is the most trusted ethical hacking certification and accomplishment recommended by employers globally. It is the most desired information security certification and represents one of the fastest-growing cyber credentials required by critical infrastructure and essential service providers. Since the introduction of CEH in 2003, it is recognized as a standard within the information security community. CEH v11 continues to introduce the latest hacking techniques and the most advanced hacking tools and exploits used by hackers and information security professionals today. The Five Phases of Ethical Hacking and the original core mission of CEH remain valid and relevant today: “To beat a hacker, you need to think like a hacker.”
Certified Ethical Hacker Key Concepts
Incorporating Parrot Security OS
When compared to Kali Linux, Parrot Security OS offers better performance on lower-powered laptops and machines while offering an intuitive look and feel with a larger repository of general tools.
Re-Mapped to NIST/NICE Framework
CEH v11 is mapped rigorously to important Specialty Areas under the NIST/NICE framework’s Protect and Defend (PR) job role category overlapping with other job roles, including Analyze (AN) and Securely Provision (SP).
Enhanced Cloud Security, IoT, and OT Modules
CEH v11 covers updated Cloud and IoT modules to incorporate CSP’s Container Technologies (e.g., Docker, Kubernetes), Cloud Computing threats, and a number of IoT hacking tools (e.g. Shikra, Bus Pirate, Facedancer21, and more). This is critical as the world moves towards broader and deeper cloud adoptions.
Modern Malware Analysis
CEH v11 now includes the latest malware analysis tactics for ransomware, banking and financial malware, IoT botnets, OT malware analysis, Android malware, and more!
Covering the Latest Threats – Fileless Malware
As the security community observed a rise in fileless attacks, it began to raise concerns about fileless malware attacks. As fileless malware is a relatively new form of malware attack, organizations find it difficult to detect with endpoint security solutions. With the CEH v11, you can now learn various fileless malware techniques with associated defensive strategies, as the course focuses on the taxonomy of fileless malware threats, fileless malware obfuscation techniques to bypass antivirus, launching fileless malware through script-based injection, launching fileless malware through phishing, and more.
New Lab Designs and Operating Systems
This latest iteration of CEH v11 includes new operating systems, including Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, and Windows 10 configured with Domain Controller, firewalls, and vulnerable web applications for practicing and improving hacking skills.
