I’m looking in to taking the self study road to getting myself ECSA/LPT certified, but i’m a little lost: i already figured out that you need to pass the ECSA exam to become ecsa certified, and if you want to obtain LPT you need to submit your certifications of both CEH and ECSA. This is all there is to it, no exam whatsoever, which is a little odd if you ask me.
Now i was wondering about the following: The ECSA/LPT course consists of 47 modules, where the first 11 are ECSA, the rest are LPT. Is the exam based on the frist 11 modules, or are all modules part of the exam?
it will probably be a while before i am going to take the exam, but expect a little review when i do…

The ECSA exam only covers modules 1-10.

hmm, that is what i thought, but some research got me the following information:
The Exam 412-79 tests ECSA/LPT candidates on the following 35 domains.
Module 1: The Need for Security Analysis
Module 2: Advanced Googling
Module 3: TCP/IP Packet Analysis
Module 4: Advanced Sniffing Techniques
Module 5: Vulnerability Analysis with Nessus
Module 6: Advanced Wireless Testing
Module 7: Designing a DMZ
Module 8: Snort Analysis
Module 9: Log Analysis
Module 10: Advanced Exploits and Tools
Module 11: Penetration Testing Methodologies
Module 12: Customers and Legal Agreements
Module 13: Penetration Testing Planning and Scheduling
Module 14: Pre Penetration Testing Checklist
Module 15: Information Gathering
Module 16: Vulnerability Analysis
Module 17: External Penetration Testing
Module 18: Internal Network Penetration Testing
Module 19: Router Penetration Testing
Module 20: Firewall Penetration Testing
Module 21: IDS Penetration Testing
Module 22: Wireless Network Penetration Testing
Module 23: Denial of Service Penetration Testing
Module 24: Password Cracking Penetration Testing
Module 25: Social Engineering Penetration Testing
Module 26: Stolen Laptop Penetration Testing
Module 27: Application Penetration Testing
Module 28: Physical Security Penetration Testing
Module 29: Database Penetration testing
Module 30: VoIP Penetration Testing
Module 31: VPN Penetration Testing
Module 32: Penetration Testing Report Analysis
Module 33: Penetration Testing Report and Documentation Writing
Module 34: Penetration Testing Deliverables and Conclusion
Module 35: Ethics of a Licensed Penetration Tester
which seems quite a lot for “just” 50 questions, that is less then 1 per module!

I did ECSA a couple of months ago myself, so I’m quite sure it’s only the first ten ones. 😉

Seconded. The exam only covers the first ten modules.

Thanks guys, i’m already through half the course, so i will finish up first and start focussing on the first ten modules.
