Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A benchmark guide for keeping networks safe with the Certified Ethical Hacker program

Seasoned authors Ronald Krutz and Russell Dean Vines continue in the tradition of their CISSP security franchise by bringing you this comprehensive guide to the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) program. Serving as a valuable tool for acquiring the necessary knowledge to prepare for and pass the CEH exam, this book offers clear, concise, and easy-to-understand explanations of key ethical hacking topics as well as hundreds of review questions. Krutz and Vines equip you with in-depth coverage of the latest hacking techniques you'll need to know in order to pass the qualifying examinations, and they arm you with both offensive and defensive approaches to help organizations identify vulnerabilities and protect their information systems.

In addition to its technical content, The CEH Prep Guide examines the legal and ethical requirements and ramifications that are associated with ethical hacking, the rationale behind it, relevant technologies and terminology, and the increased professional responsibility that accompanies the CEH certification. You'll get essential information on penetration testing, vulnerability analysis, risk mitigation, countermeasures, and upgrading defenses in an effective and cost-efficient manner. Plus, the knowledge gained from this guide is applicable to commercial, industrial, military, and government organizations. Greatly increasing your chances of success when taking the CEH exam, The CEH Prep Guide also covers:

  • Footprinting, scanning, and enumeration
  • Trojans, backdoors, and sniffers

  • Denial of service and social engineering

  • Linux hacking, cryptography, and buffer overflows

  • Honeypots, firewalls, viruses, and worms

  • Web application vulnerabilities and Web-based password cracking techniques

The accompanying CD-ROM features hundreds of questions and answers, and also serves as a self-paced examination review and knowledge reinforcement tool.

4.0 out of 5 stars So far, so good.... June 14, 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought Krutz's first book on CISSP prep and found it to be very readable and made difficult concepts more easily understood, at least enough for me to pass my CISSP certification. So far I'm 40% into this text and the same formula is holding true. A good aid for prepping for the CEH.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well written February 5, 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As an IT professional, I need to constantly learn new skills, and obtain certifications signifying knowlege of those skills. In todays economy, it's less and less often that I can convince the companies I work for to fund my training, so I've become a master of learning the skills on my own and passing the required tests.
This book is part of my training plan, I also read other books on the subject, and set up a virtual environment to get hands on practice with the many tools the CEH requires knowlege of.
This book seems to be the most organized of the bunch I read, and addresses the test objectives. I'll add to this review after I test.
Just tested this week...scored a 87% and happy with the results. Some areas missing included bluetooth and VOIP.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for self learners July 25, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I would recommend the EC Council published material, but if you are a self learner, then the book will definitely give you some idea about the computer security environment. The material covered in some chapters are very old, so make sure to read some supplementary materials along with them. Same thing applies to the referred tools, most of them are history now. But, it definitely helped me to pass the EC-COUNCIL 312-50.

5.0 out of 5 stars exceptional November 21, 2007
i have never read a book so easy!!! it makes me wanna read more and more,all chapters are exciting, i really wanna thank the writer for making it more explicit for even network dummies, with that said, everyone is capable of understanding this book and executing what its thought, not necessarily for exam purposes.

4.0 out of 5 stars CEH Exam Preparation August 21, 2010
By Jobonko
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
First of all I received my order in plenty of time before I headed to the class itself. I pressed the vendor a bit for early delivery and they delivered .. greatly appreciated.

The material in the book was well written and easy to follow and understand. I found the example test question at the end of each chapter to not be a great representation of the actual exam. The material did present the concepts and theories of ethical hacking in a clear an concise way my guess is the CEH quiz masters have redesigned the test a bit.

I will keep this book as a reference for future activities in my consulting business.
