Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH): Footprinting and Reconnaissance

Network and information security professionals


Expected Duration
90 minutes

Footprinting is a set of intelligence gathering techniques whereby an attacker attempts to gain information about a target network and computer devices. In this course, we discuss footprinting and reconnaissance, and the tools and techniques used. An ethical hacker is a person who attacks an organization’s security on behalf of its owners in order to discover vulnerabilities. Instead of taking advantage of these vulnerabilities, the ethical hacker reports them to the organization who can then put in place the appropriate countermeasures to protect themselves against malicious hackers. This course is the second in a series of courses which can used in preparation for the Certified Ethical Hacker 312-50 exam. The course has been developed in partnership with EC-Council and is based on their Ethical Hacking and Countermeasures course materials and labs.
