How to become a professional and certified ethical hacker – Learn with SoutechSamuel Udoukpeh
Trying to differentiate between Hacking and Ethical hacking? Don’t get confused. Ethical hacking actually refers to the act of locating weaknesses and vulnerabilities of computer and information systems by duplicating the intent and actions of malicious hackers within a controlled environment or with permission while a hacker refers the same above without permission. Ethical hacking involves as penetration testing, intrusion testing, or red teaming.
Someone asked me some days ago if Ethical hacking is Legal? Truth is, Hacking, doesn’t sound legal, but Ethical hacking is considered legal because the actions are used to increase the security of a computer system. The theory behind ethical hacking is that, if a white hat can break a computer system, then a black hat can use the same points of entry to promote illegal activity.
An ethical hacker is a computer and networking expert who systematically attempts to penetrate a computer system or network on behalf of its owners for the purpose of finding security vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could potentially exploit.
The World Needs Ethical Hackers
As opposed to malicious “black hat” hacking, ethical “white hat” hacking (also called penetration testing) involves using computer hacking skills to identify network security vulnerabilities and patch security holes before anyone can abuse them. This and more forms the reason why the world is open to no choice than having great need for ethical hackers.
