Lesson descriptions

Lesson 1, “Course Overview,” provides a general overview of the CEH exam, as well as the areas of focus. In addition, this lesson discusses what this video course is and isn’t so that you know what to expect to study before you take the CEH exam.

Lesson 2, “Introduction to Ethical Hacking,” explores several general concepts with respect to ethical hacking, focusing on InfoSec; attack concepts, phases, and types; and the legal aspects and methodologies of penetration testing.

Lesson 3, “Footprinting and Recon,” dives into hacking with a focus on footprinting and reconnaissance, the most important steps when evaluating a target to discern vulnerable resources.

Lesson 4, “Scanning Networks,” naturally follows up with what you learned in Lesson 3, where you now have a focused target or targets. In this lesson, you will learn how to scan networks and hosts to find services available for possible exploit. In addition to basic TCP/UDP scanning, this lesson delves into diagramming, tunneling, banners, and other approaches.

Lesson 5, “Enumeration,” covers the fundamentals of enumeration‚Äîthat is, the gathering of user names, machine names, shares, and other important host information.

Lesson 6, “Vulnerability Analysis,” begins with an introduction to vulnerability research and classification before moving on to explore vulnerability assessment, the vulnerability management lifecycle, and the different approaches to vulnerability assessment solutions. This lesson concludes by delving into vulnerability scoring systems, assessment tools, and reports.

Lesson 7, “System Hacking,” covers password cracking, Microsoft authentication, privilege escalation, alternate data streams, root kits, and other key approaches in the hacker’s toolbox.

Lesson 8, “Malware Threats,” is devoted entirely to malware‚Äîwhat it is, where it comes from, detection, and eradication, as well as Trojans and countermeasures.

Lesson 9, “Sniffing,” covers what network sniffing is and the various techniques to get access to the traffic that you want to see to enable further exploits.

Lesson 10, “Social Engineering,” discusses social engineering techniques that you can use to influence people to perform actions or release information that opens up new avenues for network exploitation. As a corollary, this lesson also covers some countermeasures to protect you from becoming a victim of social engineering.

Lesson 11, “Denial-of-Service (DoS),” examines how botnets and DoS tools can be used to cripple a resource so that it cannot provide a service. This lesson also covers some methods you can employ to mitigate or prevent DoS attacks.

Lesson 12, “Session Hijacking,” provides an overview of TCP sessions and some of the vulnerabilities that can be exploited, such as man-in-the middle and cross-site attacks.

Lesson 13, “Hacking Webservers,” looks at some of the common webserver implementations and some of the authentication authorization protocols often used. In addition, you’ll learn about common webserver attacks, methodologies, countermeasures, and several security tools.

Lesson 14, “Hacking Web Applications,” examines different attack vectors and threats, how to perform footprinting of web apps, and how to corral your knowledge of web application evolution, protocols, mechanics, and tools to guard against vulnerabilities.

Lesson 15, “Advanced Web Application Hacking,” provides you with an understanding of vulnerabilities associated with command injection, XML injection, XXS (cross-site scripting), and Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF), as well as how to both exploit and mitigate related attacks.

Lesson 16, “SQL Injection,” covers the methodologies and attacks that use SQL injection, as well as tools to detect and defend against these attacks.

Lesson 17, “Hacking Wireless,” kicks off with an in depth look at wireless LAN fundamentals, including mechanics, encryption, and antenna types. The lesson continues by providing a wealth of knowledge about building your own wireless penetration testing lab for hacking practice using tools such as Pineapple, Airecrack-ng suite, cOWPatty, and many others. This lesson also delves into Bluetooth vulnerabilities and offers strategies for defending against wireless attacks.

Lesson 18, “IDS, Firewalls, and Honeypots,” explores IDS, firewall, and honeypot concepts, tools, and related penetration testing methods.

Lesson 19, “Cloud Computing,” covers the relatively new cloud computing environment and the challenges involved with conducting penetration testing in cloud networks.

Lesson 20, “Cryptography,” explores algorithms and tools related to encryption, cryptography, and cryptanalysis.

Lesson 21, “IoT Hacking,” kicks off with a look at how the Internet of Things has become increasingly pervasive and covers the IoT tools ZigBee, IEEE 802.15.4, INSTEON, ZWave, and LoRA. The lesson concludes with coverage of IoT penetration testing methods and security tools.

Lesson 22, “Hacking Mobile Platforms,” delves into security concerns in the era of the BYOD workforce, necessitating a Mobile Device Management (MDM) strategy. An under the hood look at Android and iOS security concerns, tools, and hacking methods concludes the lesson and the course.
