How to Obtain CEH Master

The CEH Master is the next evolution for the world-renowned Certified Ethical Hacker certification. This certification is the “next step” for those holding the prestigious CEH certification. Earning the CEH Master designation is your way of saying “I learned, I understood it, and proved it.” In order to earn the CEH Master designation, you must first successfully pass the ANSI Accredited Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) multiple-choice exam. Once you pass the ANSI exam, you must pass the Certified Ethical Hacker (Practical).

CEH Exam 1: The first CEH exam consists of 125 questions with a duration of 4 hours. This test format is all multiple choice and can be taken at a Certified Pearson Vue testing center.

CEH Exam 2: The second CEH exam (Practical) consists of 20 practical challenges that must be completed within a matter of 6 hours. The exam is mostly based on labs that test your ability to use specific ethical hacking towards various network systems including DMZ, Firewalls, etc. This exam has a passing score of about 70% but, do not let that scare you away from taking this exam. I have to mention that it is an open book exam that should give you the opportunity to use those 6 hours to come up with a solution for each lab module.

CEH Practical Expectations:

  • Demonstrate the understanding of attack vectors.
  • Perform network scanning to identify live and vulnerable machines in a network.
  • Perform OS banner grabbing, service, and user enumeration.
  • Perform system hacking, steganography, steganalysis attacks, and cover tracks.
  • Identify and use viruses, computer worms, and malware to exploit systems.
  • Perform packet sniffing.
  • Conduct a variety of web server and web application attacks including directory traversal, parameter tampering, XSS, etc.
  • Perform SQL injection attacks.
  • Perform different types of cryptography attacks.
  • Perform vulnerability analysis to identify security loopholes.
