EC-Council Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst (ECTIA)

EC-Council Certified Threat Intelligence Analyst (ECTIA)

Description of Course

Differentiation from the Penetration Training Novices and the Experts, this is what the exam is purposed for. Out there exist varied Penetration testers which are Good and Great but to remain best, if this is what the candidate plans for, come in or else don’t keep bothering around with the entry to this program as if a candidate doesn’t want to be a part of best, they are probably not meant for having a cut out from same.

To test a candidate at their exhaustion brink is the best way to know what the candidates have made out from themselves from the program. The LPT (Master) exam is 18 long hours exam and its designed in the way to see the best one got.

There will be 3 levels to test your Pentest skills. There will be 3 challenges for 3 levels which will be made against the architecture which is multi-layered with the controls of defense-in-depth. Knowledgeable decisions will be required by the candidates to be made. Pressure will be immense at all the stages which are going to be critical for one to select their best of approaches and the associated exploits. With one progressing along with the levels of this test, they will be required to maneuver network, web application and also the host penetration associated tricks and tools. This shall be in both the internal as well as the context externally and finally come up with the hosts and the exfiltrate data (ones required for challenge completion, better) pwn.

One will also be required to demonstrate along with their mastery of the deploying of advanced test testing techniques and the associated tools which might include the pivoting or the SSH tunneling or the Privilege escalation or the web application exploitation, etc, at a multi-level. The web application exploitation which might further include the remote file upload, the arbitrary local, parameter manipulation, etc. All of which will be needed to be a part of the real-life scenarios with the applications, networks, and hardened machines.

The candidates facing this test won’t be having time, even to hesitate or second-guess, as the clock keeps ticking around. Any use of hesitation or second-guessing can become the reason for your failure. Well, not just this, one will also be under the watchful eyes as they face around the time’s ticking. There will be proctors form the EC-Council who will also be online and work live. This again is a way to test the mental system strength one might have, making the task harder with every passing minute.


As a progression after the ECSA (practical) the Advanced Penetration Testing Program was created to prepare and to challenge around the Licensed Penetration Tester (Master) certification. Once done with the same, the candidates can be considered as the Elite Penetration Testing Professionals.

The best of the industry came along to design this training. The training is meant to push you around and develop skills that one needs to acquire or wait for the same. You can call the LPT (Master) training to be uncomfortable and the worse which comes with the exam but remember, sometimes the stressed you bring out the best of you and your skills. For all those who get prevailed over the same for sure will develop an instinctual and some response which will intellectual too, for the Penetration training challenges that exist out there in the real world.

By every means, the institute tries to bring out the best while we push you around to your limit while you try to solve the complex problems of what the actual penetration testers do daily out there in the real work. The foundation of the programs lies with the 4 punishing and long days wherein the candidate will need to perform varied kinds of tasks until it becomes their second nature around.

One will find this program different from ECSA radically as in there the candidates are provided with guidance as to which machines are meant to be attacked and what should be the initial starting point. While when it comes to the Advanced Penetration Testing Course, candidates get presented less with the information over network together with the scope of work or SOW. Either way, this course is created to provide the candidates with some of the advanced concepts which might help one further when they try attempting the LPT (Master) Certification exam.

Candidates will also learn in the course penetration testing skills and professional security. It will also showcase the candidates with advanced concepts like the one which relates to the deploying proxy chains or defense scanning or even using web shells, etc. As a part of the course last module, the candidates will also come across SOW related to the varied networks which have been created for this course. This is then combined with the other varied range composition or the mimics as regards the professional penetration test. Time is a factor as this is limited and the candidates will be required to identify the surface of attack which will then be followed by machine weaknesses which exist on the network. With every part done proper, one who desires will aspire and finally achieve, best.
