A Certified Ethical Hacker or CEH is a skilled professional whose expertise lies on looking at the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems. He makes use of the same knowledge and tools used by a malicious hacker. Most of the time, the ethical hacker is employed by an organization with a goal of finding and fixing computer vulnerabilities. While malicious hackers gain unauthorized access to computer systems, ethical hackers gain access by owner’s requests.

Certified Ethical hackers demonstrate knowledge and skills in Perimeter Defenses, Penetration Testing Methodologies, Evidence Removal and Anti-Forensics, Passive Traffic Identification, scanning and attacking networks, breaking IP-based ACLs via spoofing, Intrusion Detection, Policy Creation, Social Engineering, DDos attacks, Buffer Overflows and Virus Creation. They also know how intruders escalate privileges and what steps can be taken to secure a system.

To become a Certified Ethical Hacker, candidates must undergo an intensive training at an accredited training center or must present documents that will verify their 2 years of information security work experience. They must have a strong working knowledge of TCP/IP and a basic familiarity with Linux or strong working support knowledge of Microsoft XP or Vista. In addition, they must pass the CEH examination that consists of 125 or 150 multiple-choice questions. The exam is administered in 3 or 4 hours via computer at an EC-Council Accredited Training Center or a Prometric Testing Center.

For those who already have a certification in ethical hacking are required by EC-Council Continuing Education or ECE to maintain and further their knowledge. Members holding the CEH designation must recertify under this program every three years for a minimum of 120 credits (40 credits per year).
