Certified Ethical Hacker passed

31 03 2015

Passed my certified Ethical hacker exam a few weeks ago 🙂

This is a subject that I am very interested in -before the course I bought and read a few books, and watched a couple of CBT training series that were available on Udemy.

Since the course, I’ve been working to further familiarise myself with the tools of the trade – Nmap, Metasploit and a few others. I have a VMWare environment with bunch of VMs to play with.

I’m going to persue Ethical Hacking further, by doing the ‘Penetration Testing with Kali Linux’ course and aiming to achieve the associated ‘Offensive Security Certified Professional’ certification. This seems great – you achieve the cert by having to hack your way as far as you can through a sandboxed network, in the Offensive Security ‘Lab’ environment – what a fantastic way to prove your knowledge.

The purpose behind all of this is not to become an ethical hacker, but to help defend the networks I manage.
