What is Ethical Hacking?
Ethical Hacking is an authorized practice of bypassing system security to identify potential data breaches and threats in a network.The Certified Ethical Hacker credentialing and training program provided by Infosif Solutions is a respected and trusted ethical hacking program in the industry. The purpose of ethical hacking is to improve the security of the network or systems by fixing the vulnerabilities found during testing. Since the inception of Certified Ethical Hacker in 2003, the credential has become one of the best options for industries and companies across the world. Ethical hackers are expected to report all the vulnerabilities and weakness found during the process to the management.Sometimes its called as Penetration Testing.
Types of Ethical Hacking
White Hat Hackers: White Hat hackers are also known as Ethical Hackers. They never intent to harm a system, rather they try to find out weaknesses in a computer or a network system as a part of penetration testing and vulnerability assessments.
Black Hat Hackers: Black Hat hackers, also known as crackers, are those who hack in order to gain unauthorized access to a system and harm its operations or steal sensitive information. Black Hat hacking is always illegal because of its bad intent which includes stealing corporate data, violating privacy, damaging the system, blocking network communication, etc.
Grey Hat Hackers: Grey hat hackers are a blend of both black hat and white hat hackers. They act without malicious intent but for their fun, they exploit a security weakness in a computer system or network without the owner’s permission or knowledge.
Miscellaneous Hackers: Apart from the above well-known classes of hackers, we have the following categories of hackers based on what they hack and how they do it:
Red Hat Hackers: Red hat hackers are again a blend of both black hat and white hat hackers. They are usually on the level of hacking government agencies, top-secret information hubs, and generally anything that falls under the category of sensitive information.
Blue Hat Hackers: A blue hat hacker is someone outside computer security consulting firms who is used to bug-test a system prior to its launch. They look for loopholes that can be exploited and try to close these gaps. Microsoft also uses the term BlueHat to represent a series of security briefing events.
Elite Hackers: This is a social status among hackers, which is used to describe the most skilled. Newly discovered exploits will circulate among these hackers.
Script Kiddie: A script kiddie is a non-expert who breaks into computer systems by using pre-packaged automated tools written by others, usually with little understanding of the underlying concept, hence the term Kiddie. Neophyte A neophyte, “n00b”, or “newbie” or “Green Hat Hacker” is someone who is new to hacking or phreaking and has almost no knowledge or experience of the workings of technology and hacking.
