CEH v9 is out, date for v8?

ajmatsonajmatson Posts: 289Member
So it looks like v9 is out on the website: CEH: Certified Ethical Hacking course from EC-Council
Does anyone know the cutoff date for v8? I have been studying for three months now icon_sad.gif and cannot find any dates.

Thanks!

    Well this is news to me, I am studying right now. Usually companies give you about three months to take the previous version before just the new one kicks in. But I don't see a date listed.

    As noted elsewhere, v9 is not out. That's a marketing page. The earliest they'll have a v9 exam out there is next summer.

    The v9 training materials are not out yet, much less the exam, so this should not affect anyone who have just passed their v8 exam.
    I just look at my CEH cert, and it does not indicate version number either.

    In any case, you are supposed to clock continual education (ECE) hours after passing to maintain the certification. Check site for ECE options, one possible option to fulfil the 120 hours is to take CEHv9 exam within 3 years of passing CEHv8. :) Spend US$600 to take 4 hour exam to fulfil 120 hours, which works out to $5 per ECE hour.

    True, though any ECC exam fulfills the requirement so I'd rather take CHFI to renew CEH and then I'd have two distinct exams instead of just extending CEH. Like you say, the cert itself doesn't say which version you took.

    I looked on Pearson Vue the other day and you can only book v8. 3 months minimum seems reasonable but could be 6 months or more like Cisco.

    If you plan to take CEHv8 through self-study, you need to go through the eligibility and exam voucher purchase process through them. The voucher is only valid for 3 months.
    See http://www.techexams.net/forums/ec-council-ceh-chfi/113086-ceh-journey-kmastaflashs-tale.html#post968448 for process overview.

    Until we get more info, assume CEHv8 retirement early next year and schedule your study.

    For CEH there is usually a 6-9 month overlap between old and new exams. That overlap period won't begin until the CEHv9 exam is on the Pearson site, so you've got at least six month to complete the CEHv8.

    Nobody was talking about eligibility since this thread is about v8 being replaced by v9...

    Anyways...if v8 expired before you took the exam you would be taking v9 not v8.

    Hello

    This post is for all those who think they will fail CEH v9 because it is something entirely different from CEh v8. This is not true. I passed CEH v9 on May 10, 2016. It was a good experience. Nothing was irrelevant. There were questions regarding:

    1) nmap scan (enumeration etc)
    2) wireshark scan
    3) snort command like tcp any any --> ....
    4) Some ports like netbios, syslog, ftp etc
    5) questions related to social engineering, black box , grey box , white box testing
    6) Regarding ARP protocol
    7) Risk management, risk acceptance, risk transfer
    icon_cool.gif The only question that I got specifically from CEH v9 course material was related to Shellshock.
    9) rest were too easy (yes even easier than point 5,6,7)

    Reading material that i used:
    1) 800 MCQs **** from 2013 (ceh vicon_cool.gif
    2) Matt Walker Ceh v8 book (2014 ed)
    3) Each n every slide of Ceh v8 and Ceh v9
    4) covered all of the above and revised 2 times

    Thanks for your time
    Good Luck!!

    You passed the CEH. There is no version anymore. I thought this would be clear by now.

    ECC also said that "CEHv8" was to be called "C|EH ANSI," but the cert community didn't take to that either. icon_wink.gif

    So quick question for those of you in this thread. I got my Security+ like 6 months year and passed with a 90% and thought it was overall not too bad. I have been working in my first security job for about 6 months now and I really like the idea of the C|EH -- not to advance my career but because I just thought it was an interesting cert. I have the v8 Matt Walker book and I am ordering a Kali Linux book on Amazon. I have Kali installed on a VM and have actually read the CEH v8 book quite a bit. Would it be wrong to study entirely from the v8 book? How big of a difference is there?

    Great that they're putting an emphasis on 2 year old vulnerabilities. I'm sure that didn't come from the marketing department.
