In-demand Information Security Certifications and hands-on ethical hacking courses for pen testers and IT security professionals. These ethical hacking certifications are provided by Offensive Security, the creators of Kali Linux.
Accompanying our hands-on security training programs are a set of industry leading Information Security Certifications, which are considered the most rigorous tests of skill available in the computer security field. These performance-based certifications rely entirely on demonstrated ability and merit. Instead of relying on outdated multiple choice questions, candidates are presented with a series of real-world hacking challenges which they must complete in a limited amount of time. Pass or fail is based on your actual performance. From the best penetration testing training comes the best information security certifications.
Offensive Security Certified Professional – OSCP Certification
Demonstrates your expertise in penetration testing techniques and tools.
The OSCP is our accompanying security certification to the Penetration Testing with Kali Linux course. The OSCP was the first security certification in the market that required a fully “hands-on” performance-based approach, leaving no space for multiple choice questions. As the market leader in hands-on security training, the OSCP changed the landscape of the security certification marketplace. During the online security test, students are placed in a virtual lab network with several vulnerable machines. Points are then awarded if a successful compromise occurs. Students must demonstrate their depth of understanding by documenting both the steps they took to penetrate the box as well as captured flag files in a report at the conclusion of testing.
Offensive Security Wireless Professional – OSWP Certification
Demonstrates your expertise in offensive wireless auditing.
The OSWP security certification demonstrates that students of the Offensive Security Wireless Attacks (WiFu) course possess the knowledge and skills needed to successfully attack wireless networks in varying configurations and protections. In order to earn the OSWP certification, the student has to attack a series of wireless networks in a real-world configuration, requiring the student to be responsive to unexpected situations and demonstrate they know how to use the right WiFi attack technique for any given scenario. The OSWP demonstrates proficiency in understanding WiFi security issues surrounding wireless network deployments, and how to successfully compromise them in the real world.
Offensive Security Certified Expert – OSCE Certification
Demonstrates your expertise in advanced penetration testing techniques.
The OSCE security certification is the challenge exam at the end of the Cracking the Perimeter (CTP) advanced penetration testing course. Going far beyond the material directly covered in the CTP online course, the OSCE exam validates the student’s grasp of the concepts presented in the material and proves their ability to think laterally under pressure by devising creative methods to achieve the exam objectives. Due to the challenging nature of this exam, candidates are provided with 48 hours for completion. Widely regarded as one of the most respected and difficult to obtain technical information security certifications available, the OSCE is the industry’s premier advanced penetration testing certification. Holders of this certification are part of an elite group who have proven they have what it takes to be among the best and brightest in the field.
Offensive Security Exploitation Expert – OSEE Certification
Demonstrates your expertise in advanced windows exploit development.
The OSEE certification is the companion certification to the extremely demanding Advanced Windows Exploitation course. The OSEE certification thoroughly assesses the students understanding of creating Windows based exploits in a manner that bypasses modern controls and anti-exploitation technologies. In this extremely challenging exam, the student is provided with 72 hours in order to develop their exploits and fully document the steps taken. The OSEE is the most well known certification specifically focused on Windows based exploitation. Holders of this certification have proven they not only understand modern exploitation techniques, but additionally how to bypass complex anti-exploitation controls and protections.
Offensive Security Web Expert – OSWE Certification
Demonstrates your expertise in advanced web application exploitation.
The OSWE certification is the accompanying certification to the Advanced Web Attacks and Exploitation course. In this 24-hour exam, students are placed in an unknown exam environment where they demonstrate their knowledge not only of the course material, but web application vulnerabilities in general. Exam candidates are required to analyze and exploit a selection of vulnerable targets and provide comprehensive documentation detailing their attacks. Holders of the OSWE certification have proven a deep understanding of web vulnerabilities and their associated impact leading to real-world compromises. Certified individuals often are some of the most productive discoverers of 0-day web exploits in the work force.
