Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) - Reconnaissance and Network Navigation

Video Description

This is the first of a four-part series designed to help you prepare for the International Council of E-Commerce Consultant's Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) exam. This course focuses on several key areas of knowledge tested in that exam: You will learn how to perform reconnaissance on companies, networks, systems, and people; how to conduct footprinting; how to exercise resource enumeration; how to sniff networks and scan them in order to better understand the attack landscape; and how to ethically gain access to systems, networks and data.

Course participants should possess a basic understanding of TCP/IP and Ethernet networking, as well as core familiarity with the Windows and Linux operating systems.

  • Gain the knowledge required to pass specific sections of the Certified Ethical Hacker exam
  • Learn how hackers gather information on companies, individuals, and various systems
  • Understand pen testing, Google dorking, TCP/IP handshaking, L2L7 sniffing, and more
  • Explore techniques used to scan networks, and enumerate network and application services
  • See how hackers sniff network traffic and build out topologies of target networks and systems
  • Acquire many of the real world skills needed to become a penetration tester
