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.”
CEH provides an in-depth understanding of ethical hacking phases, various attack vectors, and preventative countermeasures. It will teach you how hackers think and act maliciously so that you will be better positioned to set up your security infrastructure and defend future attacks. Understanding system weaknesses and vulnerabilities help organizations strengthen their system security controls to minimize the risk of an incident.
CEH was built to incorporate a hands-on environment and systematic process across every ethical hacking domain and methodology, giving you the opportunity to work towards proving the required knowledge and skills needed to perform the job of an ethical hacker. You will be exposed to an entirely different posture towards the responsibilities and measures required to be secure.
In its 11th version, CEH continues to evolve with the latest operating systems, tools, tactics, exploits, and technologies. Here are some critical updates of CEH v11:
- Incorporating Parrot Security OSWhen 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 FrameworkCEH 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 ModulesCEH 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.
- Cloud−Based ThreatsAs the cloud industry is estimated to reach $354 billion by 2022, the businesses struggle to limit the frequency of data theft incidents due to misconfigured cloud environments. January to April 2020 alone saw a 630% spike in cloud-based attacks. Learn how to avoid, identify, and respond to cloud-based attacks with CEH v11.
- IoT Threats Market reports anticipate that the worldwide IoT-connected devices are expected to reach 43 billion by 2023. To support this rapid expansion, the prominent players of the internet, including Amazon Web Services, Google, IBM, Microsoft, are swiftly shifting to private cloud services, creating complexities in IoT ecosystems. Learn to deal with IoTbased attacks with the CEH v11 course that covers the latest IoT hacking tools, such as Shikra, Bus Pirate, Facedancer21, and many others.
- Operational Technology (OT} Attacks Last year, businesses experienced a 2,000% increase in OT based incidents. You can gain expertise in OT, IT, and IIoT (industrial IoT) to secure a critical enterprise OT/IoT deployments.
- To learn the advanced skills of OT, CEH covers concepts of OT, such as ICS, SCADA, and PLC, various challenges of OT, OT hacking methodology, tools, communication protocols of an OT network like Modbus, Profinet, HART-IP, SOAP, CANopen, DeviceNet, Zigbee, Profibus, etc., and gaining Remote Access using DNP3 protocol.
- 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 MalwareAs 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 SystemsThis 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.
- Increased Lab Time and Hands−on FocusMore than 50% of the CEH v11 course is dedicated to practical skills in live ranges via EC-Council labs. EC-Council leads in this aspect of the industry.
- Industry’s Most Comprehensive Tools LibraryThe CEH v11 course includes a library of the latest tools required by security practitioners and pen testers across the world.
- BTC takes Gamification to the next level, packed with 24 incredible Hacking Challenges (on steroids!), across 4 levels of complexity covering 18 attack vectors, including the OWASP Top 10!
- Covers vulnerabilities ranging from a basic cross-site script to advanced multi-level pivoting, ultimately giving access to the entire server.
- Learners are required to possess varied skills and procedures in order to capture the flag of each vulnerability at different levels.
- Comes with an interactive UI, to which learners connect through a VPN to access applications.
- Contains a dynamic scoring system tracking a learner’s rise up levels, with competitors watching this on the portal’s dashboard.
