Does the term ?Ethical Hacker? sound like an oxymoron to you? To make it clear for you, let us explain how an ethical hacker is different from malicious hacker. A certified Information Security & Ethical Hacker is a skilled professional who understands IT hacking. But the similarity ends just there. An ethical hacker knows the loopholes of hacking, and looks for vulnerabilities in target systems. He uses the same knowledge and tools as a malicious hacker would, but applies it legitimately to assess the security posture of a target system(s).
