Become Ethical Hacker (Self Study)

In this post I'm going to share a course through which you can become 

Certified Ethical Hacker. The Certified Ethical Hacker is a professional 

certification provided by the International Council of E-Commerce Consultants 


Become Ethical Hacker (Self Study)

An ethical hacker is usually employed by an organization who trusts him or 

her to attempt to penetrate networks and/or computer systems, using the 

same methods as a hacker, for the purpose of finding and fixing computer 

security vulnerabilities. Unauthorized hacking (i.e., gaining access to 

computer systems without prior authorization from the owner) is a crime in 

most countries, but penetration testing done by request of the owner of the 

victim system(s) or network(s) is not.

A Certified Ethical Hacker has obtained a certification in how to look for the 

weaknesses and vulnerabilities in target systems and uses the same 

knowledge and tools as a hacker.

The exam code for C|EH is 312-50. The certification is in Version 7.1 as of 14 

June 2011. A version 8 has later been added.

Ethical hacking, often performed by white hats or skilled computer experts, is 

the use of programming skills to determine vulnerabilities in computer 

systems. While the non-ethical hacker or black hat exploits these 

vulnerabilities for mischief, personal gain or other reasons, the ethical hacker 

evaluates them, points them out, and may suggest changes to systems that 

make them less likely to be penetrated by black hats. White hats can work in 

a variety of ways. Many companies utilize ethical hacking services from 

consultants or full-time employees to keep their systems and information as 

secure as possible.

The work of ethical hacking is still considered hacking because it uses 

knowledge of computer systems in an attempt to in some way penetrate 

them or crash them. This work is ethical because it is performed to increase 

the safety of the computer systems. It’s reasoned that if a white hat can 

somehow break the security protocols of a system, so can a black hat. Thus, 

the goal of ethical hacking is to determine how to break in or create mischief 

with the present programs running, but only at the request of the company 

that owns the system and specifically to prevent others from attacking it.
