Ethical hacking & countermeasures v12
The Certified Ethical Hacker has been battle-hardened over the last 20 years, creating hundreds of thousands of Certified Ethical Hackers employed by top companies, militaries, and governments worldwide.
In its 12th version, the Certified Ethical Hacker provides comprehensive training, hands-on learning labs, practice cyber ranges for engagement, certification assessments, cyber competitions, and opportunities for continuous learning into one comprehensive program curated through our new learning framework: 1. Learn 2. Certify 3. Engage 4. Compete.
- The C|EH® v12 training program includes 20 modules covering various technologies, tactics, and procedures, providing prospective ethical hackers with the core knowledge needed to thrive in cybersecurity. Delivered through a carefully curated training plan that typically spans five days, the 12th version of the C|EH® continues to evolve to keep up with the latest OS, exploits, tools, and techniques. The concepts covered in the training program are split 50/50 between knowledge-based training and hands-on application through our cyber range. Every tactic discussed in training is backed by step-by-step labs conducted in a virtualized environment with live targets, live tools, and vulnerable systems. Through our lab technology, every participant will have comprehensive hands-on practice to learn and apply their knowledge.”
- Hands-On Learning Labs – With over 220 hands-on labs conducted in our cyber range environment, you will have the opportunity to practice every learning objective on live machines and vulnerable targets in the course. Pre-loaded with over 3,500 hacking tools and various operating systems, you will gain unprecedented exposure and hands-on experience with the most common security tools, latest vulnerabilities, and widely used operating systems in the industry. Our range is web accessible, making it easier for you to learn and practice from anywhere.
- The Certified Ethical Hacker® credential is trusted globally as the industry standard for evaluating one’s understanding of ethical hacking and security testing. As an ANSI 17024 accredited examination, the 150-question, 4-hour proctored exam is recognized across the globe as the original and most trusted tactical cyber security certification for ethical hackers. Certification domains are carefully vetted through industry practitioners, ensuring the certification maps to current industry requirements; this exam undergoes regular psychometric evaluation and tuning to ensure a fair and accurate measure of the candidate’s knowledge in the ethical hacking domain.
- Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH®) Certification – The C|EH® exam is a 4-hour exam with 125 multiple-choice questions. This knowledge-based exam will test your skills in information security threats and attack vectors, attack detection, attack prevention, procedures, methodologies, and more!
- C|EH® Practical Certification – The C|EH® Practical is a 6-hour, 100% hands-on exam delivered in our Cyber Range that requires you to demonstrate skills and abilities of ethical hacking techniques. This is the next step to becoming a C|EH® Master after you have achieved your C|EH® certification. Within the C|EH® Practical, you have limited time to complete 20 challenges to test your skills and proficiency in a performance-based cyber range. This exam is NOT a simulation and incorporates a live corporate network of VMs and applications with solutions to uncover vulnerabilities.
- C|EH® Master – Upon completing the C|EH® (Master) program, consisting of the C|EH® and C|EH® (Practical), the C|EH® (Master) designation is awarded. C|EH® Masters have shown proficiency at a master level in the knowledge, skills, and abilities of ethical hacking with a total of 6 hours of testing to prove their competency. The top 10 performers in both C|EH® and C|EH® Practical exams are featured on the C|EH® Master Global Ethical Hacking Leader Board.
The C|EH® v12 program helps you develop real-world experience in ethical hacking through the hands-on C|EH® practice environment. The C|EH® Engage equips you with the skills to prove that you have what it takes to be a great ethical hacker.
New to C|EH® v12, students will embark on their first emulated ethical hacking engagement. This 4-phase engagement requires students to think critically and test the knowledge and skills gained by capturing a series of flags in each phase, demonstrating the live application of skills and abilities in a consequence-free environment through EC-Council’s new Cyber Range.
As you complete your training and hands-on labs, the C|EH® Engage lets you apply everything you have learned in a mock ethical hacking engagement. This 4-part security engagement gives you a real ethical hacking engagement experience from start to finish against an emulated organization. Using our capture-the-flag-style range, you will complete your engagement by answering “flag” questions as you progress.
The C|EH® Global Challenges occur every month, providing capture-the-flag style competitions that give students exposure to various new technologies and platforms, from web applications, OT, IoT, SCADA, and ICS systems to cloud and hybrid environments. Our compete structure lets ethical hackers fight their way to the top of the leaderboard each month in these 4-hour curated CTFs. Objective-based flags are designed around the ethical hacking process, keeping skills current, testing critical thinking abilities, and covering the latest vulnerabilities and exploits as they are discovered. Hosted 100% online in EC-Council’s Cyber Range, candidates race the clock in scenario-based engagements against fully developed network and application environments with real operating systems, real networks, tools, and vulnerabilities to practice, engage, compete, build, and hone their cyber skills against various new target organizations.

Frequently Asked questions
- A Certified Ethical Hacker is a specialist typically working in a red team environment, focused on attacking computer systems and gaining access to networks, applications, databases, and other critical data on secured systems. A CEH understands attack strategies, the use of creative attack vectors, and mimics the skills and creativity of malicious hackers. Unlike malicious hackers and actors, Certified Ethical Hackers operate with permission from the system owners and take all precautions to ensure the outcomes remain confidential. Bug bounty researchers are expert ethical hackers who use their attack skills to uncover vulnerabilities in the systems.
