Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP)

The OSCP certification is considered the ultimate litmus test for offensive cybersecurity professionals. OSCP candidates must demonstrate their ability to identify system vulnerabilities, exploit multiple operating systems under a variety of scenarios, and successfully exploit weak code and hosts in order to pass the exam and receive their certificate.

The OSCP exam is conducted over a 24-hour period and tests candidates' ability to gain admin access to unknown systems by presenting real-world attack scenarios. It will test your ability to execute attacks against compromised systems and provide a detailed Penetration Test report with comprehensive notes on identified vulnerabilities once the exam has been completed.

EC-Council’s Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH)

The EC-Council's CEH exam is one of the top certifications employers look for when validating the qualifications of offensive cybersecurity candidates. Taken over the course of four hours, this exam tests your ability to use the same tools and techniques as black-hat hackers to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in a variety of systems.
