EC-Council’s Certified Penetration Tester (CPENT) program instructs you on how to execute a thorough penetration test in an enterprise’s Filtered network environment. In this course, the student will learn how to conduct an assault, exploit, avoid, and defend. The course demands students to Pentest IOT systems, OT systems, buildability your up to design your own exploit, build your own tools, execute complex binary exploitations, double pivot to access secret networks & different technologies.

CPENT Online Training Certification

You have the possibility to achieve two certifications with one test. If you pass the CPENT live range test with a score of more than 90%, you will acquire not only the CPENT certification, but also the Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) Master Credential! Characteristics of the examination:


  • Choose your challenge! Either two 12-hour sessions or a single 24-hour test!
  • EC-Council professionals proctor the whole test; cheating is not an option.
  • Score at least 70 percent and become a CPENT.
  • Score at least 90 percent and receive the highly renowned LPT (Master) title!

Attacking IoT Systems: The CPENT certification is the first to address IoT device hacking, which begins with searching the device, getting access, identifying firmware, extraction, and reverse engineering.


Bypassing a Filtered Network: In a segmented architecture, the challenger must first uncover the architecture’s filtering, then use it to get access to the web applications by compromising it, and then extract the required data.


Pentesting Operational Technology (OT): Once again, the task is to provide a first-of-its-kind penetration testing certification. The tester needs to get access to a specialized OT network and execute adjustments in the current data by invading from the IT network side.


Access Hidden Networks Using Pivoting: The tester must first access the direct network by locating the filtering rules, and then attempt pivots into the hidden network through a filter using single pivoting approaches.


Double Pivoting: Citing the European Council, “CPENT is the world’s first certification that requires you to access secret networks by double pivoting.” Because the pivot must be manually installed, this activity necessitates the tester’s competence.


Attack Automation using Scripts: The task demands the tester to employ sophisticated penetration tactics and scripting utilizing languages like Perl, Python, Ruby, PowerShell, BASH, and use techniques like Metasploit and Fuzzing techniques.


Weaponized Your Exploits: This permits the testers to utilize their coding talents and bring their own tools to fulfill the task.

The CPENT program follows the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) certification on the route to becoming a Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT) Master. There is a lot of buzz in “the ether” about CEH as a Pen Test application. That is incorrect information. The CEH course was created to educate cyber criminals’ tools and strategies.


The CPENT, as well as its now-retired predecessor courses, the EC-Council Certified Security Analyst (ECSA) and the Advanced Penetration Tester (APT), are pen test courses designed to apply CEH concepts to time-tested pen test techniques.

Windows Advanced Attacks


This zone includes a whole forest, which you must first acquire access to before executing Silver and Gold Ticket and Kerberoasting via PowerShell or any other method. Because the computers will be set with protections, you will have to employ PowerShell bypass techniques and other complex ways to score points inside the zone.



IoT System Infiltration


The first certification requires you to find IoT devices and then acquire network access. Once in the network, you must locate the IOT device’s firmware, extract it, and then reverse engineer it.


Getting Around a Filtered Network


The CPENT certification incorporates web zone difficulties that occur inside a segmentation architecture, thus you must first identify the architecture’s filtering before using this knowledge to get access to web applications. The next step is to find a middle ground and then extract the necessary data from the web applications to get points.



Operational Technology Testing (OT)


The CPENT range includes a zone devoted to ICS SCADA networks, which the applicant must infiltrate from the IT network side in order to get access to the OT network. Once there, you must locate the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and adjust the data to affect the OT network. You must be able to intercept Mod Bus Communication protocol as well as communication between the PLC and other nodes.



Pivoting allows you to get access to hidden networks.


According to our beta testing, pen testers fail to identify the rules in place when confronted with a tiered network. As a result, in this zone, you must first determine the filtering rules before entering the direct network. Candidates must next try pivots into hidden networks utilizing single pivoting approaches, but only via a filter. Most certifications do not need a real pivot over heterogeneous networks, and few (if any) require input and output from a filtering device.



Escalation of Privilege


To get root/admin in this challenge, the most recent techniques of privilege escalation reverse engineering code to take control of execution and subsequently break out of the constrained shell are necessary.



Getting Around Defense Mechanisms


The range necessitates that your exploits be tested against various defenses that you are likely to encounter in the field. Candidates must weaponized their exploits in order to get past the defenses.



Make Your Exploits Weaponized


Customize your own tools and armory using your coding knowledge to hack the problems given to you just as you would in real life.



Professional Report Writing


To really make an effect, see how a pen tester may eliminate risks and confirm the data delivered to the customer. Great pen testing is meaningless to customers unless it is accompanied by a well-written report!

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The Certified Penetration Testing Professional, or CPENT for short, is rewriting penetration testing skill development standards. The CPENT’s core premise is straightforward: a penetration tester is only as good as their abilities.

    CPENT is the world’s first pen testing certification that enables you to intercept Modbus communication protocols and communicate between PLCs and their slave nodes.

    The CPENT test is entirely practical in nature. To pass the exam, the applicant must submit the pen-testing report. How long will the test last? The test will last 24 hours. You may choose between two 12-hour sessions or one 24-hour session.

    The LPT (Master) exam is not easy; in fact, it is really demanding. As a consequence, an Advanced Penetration Testing course based on the EC-Advanced Council’s Penetration Testing Cyber Range is available to supplement it (ECCAPT).

    The LPT (Master) certification is valid for two years from the date of certification.
