“To beat a hacker, you need to think like one!” Thinking outside the box is one of the underlying themes of EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification and that quote will follow you throughout your studies. While this is a must have cert for penetration testers, the benefits extend far beyond pen-testing and into everyday network and application security. 

For those who are unfamiliar with the test, the CEH v8 Exam (312-50) consists of 125 multiple choice questions and has a 4 hour time limit. You need to score at least a 70% on the exam to pass, or get at least 88 of the questions right. The test can be taken online via Prometric Prime, at an authorized Prometric Testing Center or Vue Testing Center.

The material on the exam tests students on their knowledge of 19 domains, which are as follows: 

  • Ethical Hacking Basics
  • Footprinting and Reconnaissance
  • Network Scanning
  • Enumeration
  • System Hacking
  • Trojans and Backdoors
  • Viruses and Worms
  • Sniffers
  • Social Engineering Attacks
