Introduction to ethical hacking:

Understand the basics of ethical hacking, beginning with cyber kill chain concepts that reveal the various traces of a hacking attack. The basics of information security and the introduction to various cyber security breaches, data thefts and other vulnerabilities are also taught in this module. A quick introduction about the IT Act, 2000 is provided to students for reference. It helps students understand the stages of breaches and analyse the situation.

Footprinting and Reconnaissance:

Focuses on grabbing maximum information about the targeted device. Students are taught various ways and hack to penetrate a specific device. It becomes easier to solve cyber security breaches when they think like a hacker. Begins with footprinting basics and eventually guide you through various tactics.
Sections such as social networking footprinting, search engine footprinting, web services footprinting, ad numerous other subsections focus on detailing the footprinting map for the students.

Scanning Networks:

Network scanning helps the student identify all the hosts of a particular network and also map their IP addresses. It is a crucial phase in the curriculum of CEH as it helps gather more information and help hackers with tools to identify and prevent attacks on cyberinfrastructure. Students understand how a cyber attack occurs and numerous ways to avoid it in the organisation they work for. Few hacking tools are also introduced in this session that helps hackers to predict a cyber-attack and act in time.

Enumeration:

Students identify the user name, machine name, shares, services, network resources, and other crucial target device information. The enumeration module is of eight types, and it aims to create direct contact with the targeted device and extract maximum information. The directed queries towards a device help the hacker understand the weak points and seek ways to prevent hacking. When exposed to a hacker, the vulnerabilities of a system make it easy to penetrate and extract information.

Vulnerability Analysis:

Vulnerability or the weak points of a device or network are those areas that are exposed to a cyber attack. These are fragile points through which hackers extract information out of the system. This module focuses on enlightening the students about various weak points of a system. They learn to define, analyse, identify, classify, and prioritise the vulnerabilities to take a suitable action that closes these leaks. In this module, students learn to assess the system at various points and react to the impending threats.

System Hacking:

As the module’s name suggests, system hacking is a technique through which hackers penetrate the device. It is crucial to learn this plot as it helps ethical hackers know the threat’s route to prevent them. Students learn system hacking via various ways such as cracking passwords, privilege escalation, installation of spyware, keylogging and numerous other methods. Students learn about the spyware installation on mobile devices and innumerable tactics of hiding crucial files, tools, and additional information during a cyber attack in the system hacking module.

Malware Threats:

Malware is a threat that scares individuals, firms and large institutions. It is malicious software that can enter into your system and steal a part or whole information. It is possible to extract or delete a piece of particular details from a system after the successful installation of malware. Hackers gain complete control over a targeted device with the help of malware and can control and modify the data. Hence, ethical hacking students must learn numerous types of malware such as viruses, trojans, worms, rootkits, spyware, ransomware and many more.

Sniffing:

With sniffing, the ethical hacking students can sense and capture some or all of the data packets in a network. Cyber attackers utilise sniffing or sniffers to extract crucial information such as passwords, account data, etc. They install a sniffer into the system to target the data and utilise these for further penetration. There are multiple sniffing techniques and tools available in module 8, and shall teach the students regarding the sniffing software that can be installed in the system and break necessary information to the intruder.

Social Engineering:

The social engineering module of the certified ethical hacking course is subjected to misusing power and trust to extract crucial information from the end-user. Social engineering leans on manipulating the human brain to deliberately or unknowingly divulge important data points to a hacker. In the hacking world, social engineering is termed as a misuse of trust. The person might use malicious links in emails, mobile devices, or other social media channels to coerce the end user. The social engineering module helps the students analyse, identify, and create countermeasures to prevent the threat.

Denial-of-Service:

Denial of service is a hacking technique the attacker uses to capture multiple devices through one port. The key aim of this data denial move is to attack the user device connected to numerous others. The controlled devices deny services to the end-user hampering the tasks. In this module, students learn about the Denial-of-service concepts and various types through which these are executed. There are case studies, and towards the finish of this module, students learn the countermeasures of Denial-of-service attacks and imbibe the protection and attack tools during the course of study.

Session Hijacking:

Session hijacking is termed a sophisticated mode of cyber attack. The attacker hijacks either network, web, or a complete service session in this form. It helps them to extract information from inside and grab the crucial data. Black hat hackers use session hijacking to attack an organisation. By learning session hijacking, students can detect vulnerabilities in the entire network and devise ways to stop data leakage. The course further informs the students regarding various levels of session hijacking and how numerous countermeasures can be implied to bar the effort.

Evading IDS, Firewalls, and Honeypots:

IDS, or the intrusion detection service, is the software that keeps a close eye on the system activities and scrutinises malicious or violating moves. Similarly, firewalls operate to bar the attackers out of the network. However, honeypots are unique, and they entice the attacker to penetrate the system to understand their mode of working. This brings forth the hidden vulnerabilities of the system and helps ethical hackers to devise techniques that improve the weak points. The module highlights the numerous tools and methods that curate countermeasures to bar the cyberattack and safeguard the network..

Hacking Web Servers:

The web server can either be the hardware, software, computer application or the entire system. The primary service of a web server is to deliver information in the form of web pages to clients with the HTTP or Hypertext Transfer Protocol. Hackers try to gain access to the webserver to obtain passwords, business information and other credentials. In the present scenario, where all online services are in web applications, hacking can halt the work process and cause major losses. The module teaches students the webserver hacking methodologies and measures to counter the same.

Hacking Web Application:

Safeguarding the web application is crucial as almost all government and private institutions function on these. In pursuit of a cyber attack, the functioning at these institutions halt and can lead to enormous losses. Module 14 of the certified ethical hacking course focuses on enlightening the students regarding web application threats and numerous measures to prevent them. Students learn multiple types of attacks and the ways to identify them. They realise the methodologies and techniques for countering the web application attacks through the initial analysis. This section teaches students to break down the attack and suggest remedies.

SQL Injection:

In an SQL injection, the attacker sends an SQL query to the database, and with the help of user input, they can hack the devise and extract, delete or modify the data. It’s a server’s vulnerability that helps the attacker install SQL onto the system and raid information. In the section on SQL injection during the certified ethical hacking course, students shall learn the methods and tools required for SQL injection. These also help to evade a future attack and generate countermeasures. During the end of this module, students shall learn to detect a system’s vulnerabilities and deploy SQL for data compromise.

Hacking Wireless Networks:

The wireless network is one where at least 2 devices are connected through radio waves in a specific range. They are the epitome of convenience and also affordable. Hence, people are eager to have these at homes, offices and multiple other spaces. However, with convenience comes the bigger security issue, and wireless devices are always exposed to threats. A hacker does not even need to be in the same building to sense the network packets of the modem. During the wireless network hacking module of the CEH course, students learn how to track these packets and bar external attacks.

Hacking Mobile Platforms:

There isn’t anybody around who doesn’t own a mobile phone. It has not become more of an essential than convenience. It contains all the crucial data of the user. Hence, it’s also a target device for hackers seeking to attain vital data for their benefit. With module 17 of the certified ethical hacking course, students learn to track vulnerabilities of various mobile platforms such as iOS, Android etc. They also imbibe the security guidelines and tools that shall aid in detecting and preventing the threat.

IoT and OT Hacking:

It’s the era of smart things, and hence IoT, i.e., the internet of things, is essential for houses and workplaces. However, hackers do find vulnerabilities in this platform, too, as these are, to an extent, the most neglected ones. Hackers can cripple an entire infrastructure by collaborating with IoT hacking and the denial of service. Hence, module 18 plays a key role in cyber safety networks. Students learn about the hacking methodologies, tools and numerous countermeasures to bar the attacks. Similarly, through OT, students operate and monitor the hardware and software applications.

Cloud Computing:

Though cloud computing is considered a safe way of data storage and delivery, there are still a few weak points through which hackers attack to manipulate the storage. Ransomware and malware are a few tools used by hackers to steal data. With module 19 of certified in the ethical hacking course, the teachers shall educate regarding various other technologies and tools to hack the cloud computing space. It helps white hat hackers to find the route of threat and map the existing vulnerabilities. Once done, they can devise security measures and increase the safety of the cloud.

Cryptography:

Understanding cryptography is essential in the world of hacking. Cryptography is crucial in IT security. Initially, it was used to provide confidentiality.  Cryptography also ensures data integrity. It assures that data was not altered during transit.  Understanding cryptography allows you to identify weak points and target them. Encryption is yet another method of securing information and data. Hence, with the 20th and last module of the certified ethical hacker course, one learns the concept and algorithm of cryptography to analyse and evade threats.

What skills you will gain

Reconnaissance

Reconnaissance or inspection is a key skill obtained amidst a certified ethical hacking (CEH) course. Also termed footprinting, the skill helps ethical hackers gather maximum information about a particular target. Valuable information such as old passwords, employee data, etc. can be breached through this skill. On completing the footprinting module, ethical hacking students should be able to extract information from the target device such as IP addresses, TCP, UDP services and other vulnerabilities to track a way for the cyber attack. This helps to understand the work mode of black hat hackers.

Scanning

In this stage, hackers are probably looking for any information that can assist them in committing an attack, for example, computer names, IP addresses, and user accounts. Hackers also learn how quickly they can access the network and look for information. Your skill at this stage can be differentiated into 4 parts. The pre-attack is where they gather specific information to plan the attack. Later they begin sniffing to elaborate their plan, and then with scanning and extraction, they are already en-route to data.

Gaining Access

The next skill that CEH renders to the students is gaining access to all the crucial information at hand. Once they have all the requisite data to breach networks, the next step is to gain access. Understanding this helps ethical hackers track the hacking route and prevent or solve the issue. Once the hacker enters the system, they look forward to extracting information, and as an ethical hacker, one can also map these steps easily after the course completion.

Maintaining Access

As you are in the midst of the course, it becomes apparent that one has to imply more skills to maintain the access. After completing your ethical hacking course, this skill shall also be on your sleeves. You shall be adept with multiple tools and techniques helping to maintain the access and scan through the network to identify fragile points. Also, learning to maintain access helps analyse further damages that could have been attempted due to the vulnerabilities.

Clearing Tracks

A savvy programmer learns to consistently clear all proof so that nobody will observe any follows in the latter place of time. After the course, some skills that you shall learn are to clear the reserve and treats, alter vault esteems, and erase the upsides of logs. The other method is removing the sent messages, shutting the open ports and uninstalling any application utilised for the task. Ethical hacking students shall realise the importance and secrecy of their work and learn to erase footsteps while on their way.
