Ethical hackers find vulnerable or unsecured entry points in computer networks, gain access to the network, then work to fix the weaknesses. Using the same tools as malicious hackers do, they scan network ports, examine software installed on the network and seek ways to find files, passwords, and information that could be stolen.
Hacking skills include identity and password spoofing, network traffic monitoring (sniffing), exploiting network overflows and injecting malicious code into network databases. Ethical hackers use all of these skills for the purpose of detecting and preventing intrusions and damage.
Ethical hacking involves access to extremely sensitive and valuable equipment, software and data. A certification such as the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) signals to the network security industry that an ethical hacker takes the commitment to diligence and integrity seriously.
Ethical hacking is a highly mobile profession that lends itself well to remote, contracting and freelance work.
There are no mandatory prerequisites prior to taking Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH). However, you must have a strong background in core IT concepts such as network infrastructure, computer hardware, software and security.
This course will immerse you into the hacker mindset, putting you in the driver's seat of hands-on activities.
