GUIDE : Certified Ethical Hacker Certification in INDIA

Organizations in India and worldwide prefer certified professionals for their IT needs as they are seen to possess the specialized skill-sets needed to handle complex technologies, or to manage the ever-changing information security domain.

An Ethical Hacker is one name given to a Penetration Tester. 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 targeted 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 EC-Council’s CEH certification is unique in that it is attack-based and vendor neutral, giving it an edge over certification programs that are vendor-specific, such as the Microsoft or Cisco certification programs, or those that focus on defensive security strategies such as firewalls and antivirus.

CEH trainees are trained to think and act like hackers, using techniques used by actual hackers. CEH certification training covers both hardware and software, and features content from diverse platforms and technologies.

CEH certification is said to be the most comprehensive ethical hacker certification program available today.

EC-Council Accredited Training Centers.

CEH training and certification are provided through EC-Council Accredited Training Centers (ATCs). In India, leading ATCs include:

Overview of CEH training

CEH certificationtrainees use techniques and tools used by actual blackhat hackers to scan, test, hack and secure their own systems. They learn how perimeter defenses work and are trained to scan and penetrate their own lab networks. The CEH courseware is based on actual research in the hacker underground community by EC-Council researches, and features the latest tools, attacks and exploits used by present-day hackers.


CEHv7 (CEH version 7) is the newest version of the CEH certification. New additions in CEHv7 include the Frankenstein code repository and iLabs. The Frankenstein repository provides the latest penetration testing tools for download, while iLabs is a subscription-based, virtualized remote Windows server environment for lab exercises.

CEH course and CEH certification exam

CEH certification training spans five full days. The CEHv7 course in India costs between Rs 30,000 and Rs 40,000. The training modules include hardware and software topics to help trainees understand how real-world hackers operate, and to enable them to hack on their own. Complete details of the course are available at http://www.eccouncil.org/certification/certified_ethical_hacker.aspx.

The CEHv7 course prepares trainees for the EC-Council Certified Ethical Hacker exam 312-50. The CEH certification exam, currently in version 7.1, is usually conducted on the last day of training.

The CEHv7 certification exam 312-50 consists of 150 multiple choice questions, taken over a four-hour period. Candidates must score at least 70% in the exam, to be awarded CEH certification.

Don’t Need a Training ?

Candidates who do not wish to attend the CEH certification training course at an EC-Council accredited training center must show documentation demonstrating at least two years of information security related experience, pay a non-refundable application fee of USD 100 and complete an exam eligibility form, to qualify for the CEH certification exam.

    • jeyaganeshn

      I am not sure whether it is necessary or not. Unless and until mentioned in the course guidelines. You will definitely require a graduate degree [at least] during your job-hunt, to get past the HR screening level.
