EC-Council Licensed Penetration Tester (LPT Master)
This exam has one purpose: To Differentiate The Experts From The Novices In Penetration Testing!
There are good penetration testers and then there are great penetration testers.
Unless you are bent on being nothing other than the best in penetration testing, don’t bother registering for this program, as you are probably not cut out for it.
We know that the only way to find out what you are made of is by testing you at the brink of exhaustion — which is why the LPT (Master) exam is 18 hours long!
Your pen testing skills will be challenged over three levels, each with three challenges, against a multi-layered network architecture with defense-in-depth controls. You will be required to make knowledgeable decisions under immense pressure at critical stages while selecting your approach and exploits.
As you progress along these levels, you will need to maneuver web application, network, and host penetration testing tools and tricks in an internal and external context to ultimately pwn the hosts and exfiltrate data required for the completion of the challenges.
The exam will require you to demonstrate mastery of deploying advanced pen testing techniques and tools including multi-level pivoting, OS vulnerabilities exploits, SSH tunneling, host-based application exploits, privilege escalation, web server and web application exploitation such as arbitrary local and remote file upload, SQL injection and parameter manipulation, etc – all in a real life scenario on hardened machines, networks, and applications.
Introducing the World’s Most Advanced Penetration Testing Certification Program:
The Advanced Penetration Testing Course by EC-Council was created as the progression after the ECSA (Practical) to prepare those that want to challenge the Licensed Penetration Tester (Master) certification and be recognized as elite penetration testing professionals. Our training has been designed by the best in the industry and meant to push you to develop the kind of skill that you’ve been waiting to acquire.
Licensed Penetration Tester (Master) training is not comfortable (and the exam is even worse!) , but filled with intense stress meant to elicit the best from you. Those who prevail will have developed an instinctual and intellectual response to real world penetration testing challenges.
This program is radically different from the ECSA. In the ECSA course, you are provided guidance on what machines to attack and an initial starting point. In the Advanced Penetration Testing Course, you are presented with minimal network information along with a Scope of Work (SOW). The course was created to provide you with advanced concepts that will help when it comes to attempting the LPT (Master) Certification exam.
In this course you will learn professional security and penetration testing skills. The course is designed to show advanced concepts like scanning against defenses, pivoting between networks, deploying proxy chains, and using web shells. The last module of the course includes an SOW for each of the various networks we have created for the course. This, combined with the composition of various ranges, mimics a professional penetration test. Time is limited and you will be required to identify the attack surface followed by the weaknesses of the machines that are on the network.

The Planet’s Most Advanced Penetration Testing Certification Range:
How do you create an Advanced Penetration Tester?
How do you ensure that students are trained on the secrets of the trade while being pushed to their limit?
The Advanced Penetration Testing course from EC-Council is built on the backbone of the Advanced Penetration Testing Cyber Range (ECCAPT) and this was designed by experts who each have more than 25 years of professional security testing across the globe.
Licensed Penetration Tester (Master) Certification:
EC-Council brings to you a new range of real world challenges that will not only test your Pen-testing skills but guarantees you an experience that is not built for the weak hearted. If you have been looking for a way to test your Pen-testing abilities, this is your chance to prove you have what it takes.
LPT (Master) certified professional can:
- Demonstrate a repeatable and measurable approach to penetration testing
- Perform advanced techniques and attacks to identify SQL injection, Cross site scripting (XSS), LFI, RFI vulnerabilities in web applications
- Submit a professional and industry accepted report that achieves management and technical buy-in
- Get access to proprietary EC-Council penetration testing methodologies
- Write exploit codes to gain access to a vulnerable system or application
- Exploit vulnerabilities in Operating systems such as Windows, Linux
- Perform privilege escalation to gain root access to a system
- Demonstrate ‘Out-of-the-box’ and ‘lateral’ thinking
- Ensure the integrity and value of the penetration testing certification, in a fully online, remotely proctored certification exam
Being an LPT (Master) means that you can find chinks in the armor of defense-in-depth network security models with the help of network pivoting, making exploit codes work in your favor, or by writing Bash, Python, Perl, and Ruby scripts. The exam demands that you think on your feet, be creative in your approach, and not rely on the conventional techniques. Outsmarting and out maneuvering the adversary is what sets you apart from the crowd. This completely hands-on exam offers a challenge like no other by simulating a complex network of a multinational organization in real time. This experience will test your perseverance and focus by forcing you to outdo yourself with each new challenge.
About the Program:
The LPT (Master) is the world’s first fully online, remotely proctored LPT (Master) practical exam, which challenges the candidates through a grueling 18 hours of performance based, hands-on exam categorized into three practical exams for six-hour duration each, which will test your perseverance and focus by forcing you to outdo yourself with each new challenge. The exam requires the candidates to demonstrate a methodical approach to test and validate security defenses. The LPT (Master) exam is developed with close collaboration with SMEs and practitioners around the world after a thorough job role, job task, and skills-gap analysis.
Real world, performance based assessment:
The successful candidates need to demonstrate a mastery of the skills required to conduct a full black box penetration test that simulates a complex network of a multinational organization in real time. The exam environment via EC-Council’s cloud based cyber range, iLabs, has multiple networks with different militarized and de-militarized zones. You will follow the entire process of “Cyber kill chain”, taking you from reconnaissance, scanning, enumeration, gaining access, maintaining access, then exploiting vulnerabilities that you will have to seek out in a network that only a true penetration tester will be able to break.
To build on the technical skills taught in the Certified Ethical Hacking course, the repeatable and documentable methodology provided in the EC Council security analyst program , the EC-Council LPT (Master) course emphasizes application of this methodical approach to penetration testing. The LPT (Master) practical exam thoroughly tests the application of the penetration testing process and lifecycle knowledge and the skills required in an examination that even our reviewers have called “extremely challenging”.
Penetration test report:
Many have described report writing as one of least preferred, yet arguably one of the most critical parts of any penetration testing engagement. While so many cyber security courses are offered globally to cover various subjects in the penetration testing realm, hardly any are dedicated to this very important skill, especially almost since half of all time spent at any penetration testing engagement can revolve around writing and reporting the core findings of the engagement to the client.
LPT (Master) Credential:
- Successful candidates will receive the LPT (Master) Welcome Kit consisting of:
- Printed Certificate
- Welcome Letter
- Lapel Pin
- EC-Council LPT (master) T-Shirt
