Certified Ethical Hacking Certification

CEH-Cert-Mokcup-02-1A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker, but in a lawful and legitimate manner to assess the security posture of a target system(s). The CEH credential certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective.

Certification is achieved by taking the CEH examination after having either attended training at an Accredited Training Center (ATC), or completed through self-study. If a candidate opts for self-study, an application must be filled out and proof submitted of two years of relevant information security work experience. Those without the required two years of information security related work experience can request consideration of educational background. The current version of the CEH is V9 which uses the EC-Council's exam 312-50, as the earlier versions did. Although the new version V8 has recently been launched, this exam has 125 multiple-choice questions, with a 4-hour time limit, and requires at least a score of 70% to pass. The test delivery will be web based, via Prometric prime. The exam code varies at different testing centers. The 312-50 exam proctored at Accredited Training Centers (ATC). The earlier v7 had 150 multiple-choice questions and a four-hour time limit. The version 7 and version 8 exams cost US$500 for the actual test and $100 as a non-refundable fee for registration. Prices apply in the United States (prices in other countries may be different), and is administered via computer at an EC-Council Accredited Training Center, Pearson VUE, or Prometric testing center (in the United States). The V9 has been released with very few changes in its modules.

The EC-Council and various ATCs (Authorized Training Center) administer the CEH examination. Members holding the CEH/CNDA designation (as well as other EC-Council certifications) must seek re-certification under this program every three years, for a minimum of 120 credits.
