Certified Penetration Testing Professional (CPENT)

The Certified Penetration Testing Professional or CPENT, for short, re-writes the standards of penetration testing skill development.

EC-Council’s Certified Penetration Tester (CPENT) program teaches you how to perform an effective penetration test in an enterprise network environment that must be attacked, exploited, evaded, and defended. If you have only been working in flat networks, CPENT’s live practice range will teach you to take your skills to the next level by teaching you how to pen test IoT systems, OT systems, how to write your own exploits, build your own tools, conduct advanced binaries exploitation, double pivot to access hidden networks, and also customize scripts/exploits to get into the innermost segments of the network.

CPENT Challenge Edition
Challenge the CPENT exam with what you already know

The CPENT Challenge Edition is a low-cost study resource that will provide a refresher in areas such as IoT, ICS, SCADA, and binary analysis.

The CPENT Challenge Edition includes a selection of labs from each of the CPENT course modules that will introduce you to the concepts that are required to obtain the required points across the different zones.

Access to the practice range is included so you can explore the concepts and perform the required research on your own to be sure you are ready for the CPENT practical exam.

If you already consider yourself a pro-level pen tester, then CPENT Challenge Edition is for you!

The CPENT training program and the CPENT Challenge both come with a shot at earning your CPENT certification, so the only question is, “Do you need training or are you ready to take the CHALLENGE?”

The heart of the CPENT program is all about helping you master your pen testing skills by putting them to use on our live cyber ranges. The CPENT ranges were designed to be dynamic in order to give you a real-world training program, so just as targets and technology continue to change in live networks, both the CPENT practice and exam ranges will mimic this reality as our team of engineers continue to add targets and defenses throughout the CPENT course’s lifetime.

Module 14: Report Writing and Post Testing Actions

The CPENT range consists of entire network segments that replicate an enterprise network — this is not a computer game simulation; this is an accurate representation of an enterprise network that will present the latest challenges to the pen tester. The benefit of hands on learning in a live cyber range is that candidates will encounter multiple layers of network segmentation, and the CPENT course will teach candidates how to navigate these layers, so that once access is gained in one segment, a candidate will know the latest pivoting techniques required to reach the next. However, that won’t be enough on its own as the targets and segments are progressive in nature, so once you get into one machine and or segment, the next one will challenge you even more!

CPENT is a fully online, remotely proctored practical exam that challenges candidates through a grueling 24-hour performance-based, hands-on exam. The exam is broken into 2 practical exams of 12-hours each that will test your perseverance and focus by forcing you to outdo yourself with each new challenge. Candidates have the option to choose either 2 12-hour exams or one 24-hour exam.  Candidates who score more than 70% will earn the CPENT certification. Candidates who score more than 90% attain the prestigious LPT (Master) credential!

       

Exam features: 

  • Choose your challenge! Either two 12-Hour sessions or a single 24-Hour exam! 
  • EC-Council specialists proctor the entire exam – Validity is not in question. 
  • Score at least 70% and become a CPENT 
  • Score at least 90% and earn the highly regarded LPT (Master) designation!

You have the potential to earn two certifications with one exam. If you score above a 90% on the CPENT live range exam, not only will you earn the CPENT certification, but you will also earn the Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) Master Credential!  

To be a LPT (Master) means that you can find chinks in the armor of defense-in-depth network security models with the help of network pivoting, making exploit codes work in your favor, or by writing Bash, Python, Perl, and Ruby scripts. The live range CPENT exam demands that you think on your feet, be creative in your approach, and not rely on the conventional techniques.  

Outsmarting and out maneuvering the adversary is what sets you apart from the crowd. The CPENT’s hands-on exam offers a challenge like no other by simulating a complex network in real time. This experience will test your perseverance and focus by forcing you to outdo yourself with each new challenge.
