Talking about ethical hacking, which is the need of the hour, to protect all online transactions from the wrath of viruses, An ethical hacker is a computer and network expert who attacks a security system on behalf of its owners, seeking vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could exploit. To test a security system, ethical hackers use the same methods as their less principled counterparts, but report problems instead of taking advantage of them. Ethical hacking is also known as penetration testing, intrusion testing, and red teaming.
Ethical Hacking is a scientific approach of understanding the tools, techniques and methodologies used by malicious hackers, thereby evaluating and mitigating the enormous threat posed by them. In other words, it is studying the vulnerability of a computer system and designing a security system, which is non-hack able.
The CEH Program certifies individuals in the specific network security discipline of Ethical Hacking from a vendor-neutral perspective. The Certified Ethical Hacker certification will fortify the application knowledge of security officers, auditors, security professionals, site administrators, and anyone who is concerned about the integrity of the network infrastructure. 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.
There are some things about network and computer securities which change over time, sometimes very rapidly over a very short period of time; “phishing” was largely unheard of. Before that, wireless network security was not on the radar. Now these are common, everyday security concerns. But, there are also aspects of computer security which more or less transcend time and remain as core fundamentals even while the rest of the technology changes. Hundreds of IT Professionals have had joined EC Council, has been a great experience to attend this outstanding and informative web cast, and teaching methodology was exceptional.
