Black Hat Hacking vs. Certified Ethical Hacking

>> Sunday, September 06, 2009

cehBlack hat, white hat, ethical hacking, blah blah it’s all the same thing… you’re all hacking! No not really, here’s why:
Certified Ethical Hacking
Black Hat Hacking
Has permission to hack the system.Doesn’t have any permission to hack the system.
Gets paid to hack the system.Most likely isn’t getting paid and if money is involved the rewards could be huge, but so is the risk of getting caught. See #4.
Doing it because it’s a job and hopefully it’s something that’s enjoyable.Does it for the reasons mentioned here.
If caught, no penalties.If caught, possible jail sentence and fine. Hacker’s aren’t known to be buff. Typing all day doesn’t do much for the muscles, so with a jail sentence comes the possibility of becoming someone’s bitch.
Could get well known and respected for your work.Identity must be kept secret so aliases are used. Could possibly get recognition and respect for your alias, but all that goes away when a someone decides they like your alias and want to use it as well.
