About the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (Practical)

ECSA (Practical) is a 12-hour, rigorous practical exam built to test your penetration testing skills.

ECSA (Practical) presents you with an organization and its network environment, containing multiple hosts. The internal network consists of several subnets housing various organizational units. It is made up of militarized and demilitarized zones, connected with a huge pool of database servers in a database zone. As a security precaution, and by design, all the internal resource zones are confi­gured with different subnet IPs. The militarized zone houses the domain controllers and application servers that provide application frameworks for various departments of the organization.

The candidates are required to demonstrate the application of the penetration testing methodology that is presented in the ECSA program, and are required to perform a comprehensive security audit of an organization, just like in the real world. You will start with challenges requiring you to perform advanced network scans beyond perimeter defenses, leading to automated and manual vulnerability analysis, exploit selection, customization, launch, and post exploitation maneuvers.
