Passing Score:

In order to maintain the high integrity of our certification exams, EC-Council Exams are provided in multiple forms (I.e. different question banks). Each form is carefully analyzed through beta testing with an appropriate sample group under the purview of a committee of subject matter experts that ensure that each of our exams not only has academic rigor but also has real world applicability. We also have a process to determine the difficulty rating of each question. The individual rating then contributes to an overall cut score for each exam form. To ensure each form has equal assessment standards, cut scores are set on a “per exam form” basis. Depending on which exam form is challenged, cut scores can range from 60% to 85%.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

About The Program

Program Outline

EC-Council places great emphasis on the quality of its instructors. A 17-year-old will not be teaching security to professionals at our accredited training centres. Certainly, experience is the greatest teacher. However, EC-Council adheres to a code of ethics and encourages security professionals with significant years of teaching experience in the industry and a security background to handle our security related programs.

What makes this program different from others in the market?

The program focuses on hacking techniques and technologies from an offensive perspective. This advanced security program is regularly updated to reflect the latest developments in the domain, including new hacking techniques, exploits, automated programs as well as defensive recommendations as outlined by experts in the field. The CEH body of knowledge represents detailed contributions from security experts, academicians, industry practitioners and the security community at large.

What can I take back to my organization if I certify as a CEH?

EC-Council believes in giving back to the security community as it has partaken of it. When you are a Certified Ethical Hacker, you are more than a security auditor or a vulnerability tester or a penetration tester alone. You are exposed to security checklists that will help you audit the organization’s information assets, tools which will check for vulnerabilities that can be exploited and above all a methodology to assess the security posture of your organization by doing a penetration test against it. In short, the knowledge you will acquire has practical value to make your work place a more secure and efficient one.

Where does CEH stand when compared to other educational offerings in the field of information security?

Consider this: A security defense programeducates candidates regarding proper configuration, firewalls, or rather pre-emptive security. CEH takes the alternative approach – defense in depth by attacking the systems. This is in sharp contrast to programs that teach defensive tactics alone. CEH imparts offensive tactics supplemented with defensive countermeasures. This ensures that the CEH professional can have a holistic security perspective of the organization.

What are Hacking techniques and their technology?

Hacking techniques represent ways and means by which computer programs can be made to behave in ways they are not meant to. These techniques extend beyond the technology domain and can be applied to test security policies and procedures. Hacking technologies are used to refer to those tools and automated programs that can be used by perpetrators against an organization to incur critical damage. As technology advances, the skills required to execute a hack are much lesser as pre-compiled programs are available to effect havoc with simple point and click.

I am a CEH. What is my level?

Congratulations on becoming a CEH! You have joined an elite group of professionals around the world. Your next level is to become an EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (E|CSA) or proceed with the CEH (Practical).

What is the retake policy?

Retake exam requests can only be purchased by writing to [email protected], should a candidate fail the exam.  You can also read more about the retake policy Here

Exam Policies

Can I pursue self-study and attempt the exam instead of attending formal training?

What are the eligibility criteria to apply for the CEH (ANSI) exam?

To be eligible to apply to sit for the CEH (ANSI) Exam, a candidate must either:

  • Hold a CEH certification of version 1 to 7,

* (Prior to being ANSI accredited, EC-Council’s certifications were named, based on versions – CEHV1, CEHV2 etc. During that time, candidates that attempted the certification exams were vetted for eligibility. In order to avoid “being double bill”, the EC-Council Certification department shall issue a waiver of the application fee of any candidate that has a CEH V1- CEH V7 certification and wishes to attempt the CEH ANSI certification.)

  • Or Have attended an official EC-Council training (All candidates are required to pay the $100 application fee; however, your training fee shall include this fee)

Note:

  • As various consumer laws across the world to prohibit any type of “price fixing”, EC-Council Certification department is unable to prescribe minimum pricing for its exams. This allows a free market approach which benefits our certification community.
  • As the price of an exam vouchers is many times bundled with official training by our accredited partners, the price may vary depending on the region, training facilities, training partner, the trainers experience, cost of proctoring the exam and even the mode of training of the partner.
  • It is imperative that we make it clear that no student shall be deemed to have any added advantage whatsoever from one mode of training to another in order to challenge the CEH ANSI exam as the exam is a standard exam for everyone, regardless of the method of training.
  • Should any training partner attempt to tell you otherwise, we ask that you lodge an official complaint with the EC-Council certification department so that the necessary action can be taken against the training partner.

Note: All exam sessions are proctored by EC-Council Certification department.

 

General

Isn't this knowledge harmful? Why do you make it available so easily to the public?

EC-Council fulfils its social responsibility by ensuring that only persons with a minimum of two years of security related experience are eligible for the program. In addition, all candidates are required to sign an agreement where they agree to respect the knowledge acquired and not misuse it in any way. The candidate also agrees to abide by all legal laws of their respective countries of residence in the use of thus acquired knowledge. Besides the CEH exam is a tough one to pass as students must have in-depth knowledge to achieve the globally recognized ethical hacking certification.

Aren't tools meant for script kiddies?

Does it matter if an elite hacker writes a buffer overflow or a script kiddy runs a tool if the target system gets compromised anyway? The point here is that the enemy may be intellectually great or small, but he/she requires just one port of entry to wreck damage while the organization has the entire perimeter to guard with limited time and resources.

 

What is the employment value of CEH?

The ANSI accredited Ethical Hacking program is primarily targeted at security professionals who want to acquire a well-rounded body of knowledge to have better opportunities in this field. Acquiring a Certified Ethical Hacking Certification means the candidate has a minimum baseline knowledge of security threats, risks and countermeasures. Organizations can rest assured that they have a candidate who is more than a systems administrator, a security auditor, a hacking tool analyst or a vulnerability tester. The candidate is assured of having both business and technical knowledge.

 

What are the important things to keep in mind before I schedule my exam with a remote proctor?

Once you are ready to proceed with your exam, please ensure you understand the below:

  • You need to run an equipment test
  • You need to carry an identification proof
  • You should hold an valid exam voucher

 

Is the CEH (ANSI) title a part of the EC-Council Continuing Education Scheme?

Yes, the CEH (ANSI) is a part of the EC-Council Continuing Education Scheme.

 

It is all too technical. Do you reflect real-world business issues?

The value of CEH lies in its practical value. Over 18 domains, students are exposed to business risks and the potential damage that can occur due to negligence. Students will be able to make an informed decision regarding the amount of risk a company can face if it chooses to address a security concern.
