    One possible reason is that SANS markets its GIAC certifications to organizations needing to train and certify employees rather than to individual people desiring certification. The SANS GIAC certification are premium, professional, well-respected in many IT industries, and therefore justifiable in their pricing. The accompanying SANS training makes it impossible to justifiably refer to any GIAC certification as a "paper cert."

    As jdmurray answered your first question very well, let me answer your second: you can "challenge" a particular cert for the cost of 800$. That's the cheapest route to a GIAC cert. You can read more about it on their website. Good luck

    Just passed the second test of the GCIA today and wow was that an intense test. I guess when a test is open book it always tends to be a lot more difficult. Good luck to all that are trying to get this cert. KNOW YOUR SNORT!!! Now it's on to the GSEC. Hopefully this will be a lot more enjoying to take then the GCIA.
