    CEH, being the globally accepted certification, is ANSI 17024 compliant and adds value to the credential members. This course in its 10th iteration has got updated with the tools and techniques used by information security professionals and the hackers to hack any of the systems.

    The course mainly envelopes the five phases of ethical hacking. They are:

    • Diving into Reconnaissance
    • Gaining Access
    • Enumeration
    • Maintaining Access
    • Covering your Tracks

    Highlights of CEH v10:

    1. Compliant with Nice 2.0 Framework:

    CEH v10 maps 100% to NICE framework’s Protect and Defend specialty area

    2. New Modules:

    A] Vulnerability Analysis: This topic will get you acquainted with the skill to perform vulnerability analysis. You will be able to identify the security loopholes present in the network, communication infrastructure, and, end systems.

    It helps you to manage

    • Vulnerability management lifecycle
    • Perform vulnerability assessment through various tools/approaches

    B] IoT Hacking: This module, introduced in the wake of unprotected IoT devices’ threat gives you the basic understanding of the potential threats related to IoT platforms and help you defend IoT devices.

    3. An Insight into Cloud computing threats and attacks:

    It provides an insight into the emerging threats like:

    • Cloud computing threats
    • Cloud computing attacks
    • Cloud computing security and tools
    • Pen-testing steps

    Moreover, it teaches you to use Artificial Intelligence to defend the network against attacks that an antivirus scan may fail to detect.

    4. Each module has hacking challenges:

    Once you complete a module, you can practice what you have learned that could be used helpfully to solve real-time challenges.  

    5. Latest Malware:

    This module highlights the latest malware namely the IoT botnet, Android malware, latest ransomware, banking/financial malware, and, etc.

    6. Malware Analysis Process:

    This topic will make you learn reverse engineer malware so as to determine the origin, functionality, and potential impact of the malware, which is a crucial skill for an ethical hacker.

    7. Hands-on Program:

    The theory to practice ratio for CEH program now onwards is 60:40, which is achieved through EC-Council iLabs. Moreover, the participants can purchase and acquire additional labs post training for practice through EC-Council iLabs platform.

    8. Lab environment simulating Real-time environment:

    CEH v10 lab environment has the latest operating systems. They are Windows Server 2016 and Windows 10 configured with Domain Controller, firewalls, and vulnerable web applications.

    9. Latest Hacking tools:

    The CEH v10 course possesses a library of tools essential for security practitioners and pentesters to work across operating platforms like Windows, MAC, Linux, and Mobile.

    10. ANSI accreditation:

    Earning the ANSI accreditation validates your skill and knowledge that meets the predefined industry requirements.


    Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing [VAPT] Learning Track:

    As we all know, the cybersecurity programs and credentials are always organized into learning paths facilitating the professionals to specialize in a select domain and advance the skills.  

    The learning path is as follows:
