The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification is a professional certification provided by the Networkbug Information Security Group .
The definition of an Ethical Hacker is very similar to a Penetration Tester. The Ethical Hacker is an individual who is usually employed with the organization and who can be trusted to undertake an attempt to penetrate networks and / or computer systems using the same methods as a hacker.
Illegal hacking (i.e.; cracking computer systems) is a felony in the United States and most other countries. But when this type of hacking is done by request and under a contract between an Ethical Hacker and an organization, it is legal. The most important point is that an Ethical Hacker has authorization to probe the target.
A Certified Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands and knows how to look for the weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker.
CEH curriculum consists of instructor-led training and self-study modules. The instructor will provide the details of self-study modules to the students at the beginning of the class.
