    I’m interested in getting the CHFI cert. Does anyone on this forum has this certification? What materials would you suggest that I study? How can I get experience in this area?



    please which body is conducting the CHFI Exam, and how to register



    The test is administered by Prometric Prime, VUE or ECC EXAM. You should probably check in your area to see where you can take the exam and how to register.

    I have the CHFI certificate and it is a nice one. You have to bring a wide range of knowledge to the table to pass the certification. The EC Council website,, has a host of good information. Take a look at the course information to get a little insight into it. I am pasting some of it below for your reference.

    A CHFI v8 certified professional will be able to understand:

    The process of investigating cyber-crimes and the laws involved, as well as details in obtaining a search warrant.
    Different types of digital evidence, rules of evidence, digital evidence examination processes, and electronic crime and digital evidence consideration by crime category.
    Roles of a first responder, first responder toolkit, securing and evaluating an electronic crime scene, conducting preliminary interviews, documenting electronic crime scenes, collecting and preserving electronic evidence, packaging and transporting electronic evidence and reporting the crime scene
    How to recover deleted files and deleted partitions in Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
    The process involved in forensic investigation using Access Data FTK and Encase Steganography and its techniques, as well as steganalysis, and image file forensics
    Password cracking concepts, tools, types of password attacks and how to investigate password protected file breaches.
    Different types of log capturing techniques, log management, time synchronization and log capturing tools.
    How to investigate logs, network traffic, wireless attacks, and web attacks
    How to track e-mails and investigate e-mail crimes and many more.

    This skims the surface of what you need to know for the CHFI.



    Thanks for sharing.

    For those of you interested in obtaining the CHFI certification, the certifying body is EC-Council. More information about this certification is available
    As mentioned in an earlier post you can take the exam at a Prometric / Vue site or you may also take the exam via, but you will first need to purchase the voucher and then register for the exam via the EC-Council Aspen Portal.
