    Certified Ethical Hacker update

    As there are a few people on the forum that are either studying for this, considering this or will be studying for this, I thought that this would be of interest:

    The CEH v5 exam will be available until June 3rd, 2009 then retired

    Note:

    1. The exam codes EC0-350 are 312-50 are the same exam.
    2. The exam title "Certified Ethical Hacker" and "Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures" are the same
    3. VUE and Prometric systems use different exam codes.
    4. The CEHv4 exam has been retired since June 1st 2007
    5. CEHv5 exam is available on Prometric Prime, APTC and VUE.

    Cheers Ken, good to know. While we are on this subject I'm wondering if anyone can help dispel a rumour I've heard that Military contracts don't rate the CEH and will even go as far as to flag you up as a potential miscreant if they get a CV with CEH on?
    Thanks
    James

    From what I can gather from various posts, the word/term "Hacker" doesn't bold well (however as I have never worked for the military, I'm only passing on 3rd party info). This is why the EC-Council developed the CNDA program, which is basically the CEH program under a different name.

    Thanks Ken, seeing as I want to get into Pen testing, as much as I want to do the CEH, I'm thinking I better look into Check and Crest. James
