Oct 14 2005 - Today Mile2 was awarded a contract to deliver CPTS & CPTE as dedicated classes for I.T. Staff at a major US Air Force Base. The statement of work included the following quote:
"These courses cannot be substituted with a Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH) curriculum."
From US Air Force Statement of Work 05T0273 Published 09/14/2005 inviting public bids for Penetration Testing Training. Awarded to Mile2 10/14/2005.
One prospective respondent to the solicitation asked the following question on Sept 28 2005:
Q: " Why doesn't Wright-Patterson AFB want a CEH-certified curriculum?"
USAF's response was as follows:
A: "CEH-certified courses tend to focus on teaching the student how to use a
handful of tools that are available on the internet. While this knowledge is
somewhat useful during a penetration test, our goal is to expand on this and
learn how to turn our results into a professional report. Most of our students
know how to use these tools, but need to learn the methodology behind a full
penetration test. This methodology could include identifing protection
opportunities, justifing testing activities and optimizing security controls to
reduce business risk."
