Re: OPST vs CEH

I've taken the CEH class. It's pretty good, but it focuses more on hacking
windows then it does linux or unix. The instructor and environment was
good though. They don't really talk too much in depth about buffer
overflows or privledge escalation on linux. But I think the class was
worth it. NEver taken any of those other tests.

I'm thinking about taking one of these certs. OPST (OSSTMM PROFESSIONAL
SECURITY TESTER)
 or CEH (certified ethical hacker)
I've read about the two, and they seem to be kind of the same thing.
I know that some people in here were talking about the opst, but what about
the ceh?
Has anyone taking the CEH or both?
Please let me know.

thanks.
