EC-Council's Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures (CEH) covers concepts and tools related to exploiting systems, networks, devices and operating platforms. This includes hacking concepts such as vulnerability assessment, network intrusion, reverse engineering, defacing websites, damaging network appliances, launching distributed denial-of-service attacks, massive worm propagation, breaking passwords, brute-forcing authentication systems, cracking encryption, exploiting systems, advance viruses, Trojans, and other malware. This certificate is targeted at site administrators, security professionals, auditors and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure.
This is the first of a four-part series designed to help you prepare for the International Council of E-Commerce Consultant's Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) exam. This course focuses on several key areas of knowledge tested in that exam: You will learn how to perform reconnaissance on companies, networks, systems, and people; how to conduct footprinting; how to exercise resource enumeration; how to sniff networks and scan them in order to better understand the attack landscape; and how to ethically gain access to systems, networks and data.
