The Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) is a cybersecurity certification offered by the International Council of Electronic Commerce Consultants (EC-Council). It is designed to certify individuals who have the knowledge and skills to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in computer systems and networks, and to use that knowledge to protect against cyber threats.

To earn the CEH certificate, candidates must pass a comprehensive exam that covers a wide range of topics in ethical hacking and cybersecurity. These topics may include network security, web application security, mobile security, cryptography, and cloud security, among others.

The CEH certification is widely recognized in the cybersecurity industry and is often used as a requirement or qualification for certain cybersecurity job roles. It is intended for professionals who work in positions such as penetration testers, security analysts, and network administrators.

To maintain their CEH certification, individuals must complete continuing education requirements and retake the exam every three years. This helps to ensure that CEH holders remain current on the latest developments and best practices in the field of cybersecurity.
