eLearnSecurity Certified eXploit Developer (eCXD)
Join Cyber Security professionals around the world by passing eLearnSecurity's Certified eXploit Developer certification (eCXD). This certification involves performing a software vulnerability identification and exploitation against actual Windows and Linux software in addition to proposing alternative exploitation paths and showing documentation of your work. This novice level certification showcases your situational and critical thinking skills while demonstrating your knowledge of exploit development processes and methodologies to current and potential employers.
Learn the fundamentals of Windows and Linux exploit development
If you're looking for the most practical way into the exploit development and software security world, look no further. The Exploit Development Student certification provides not only the fundamentals of Windows and Linux exploit development but also covers advanced Windows and Linux exploit development techniques, as well as anti-exploit mechanism bypasses.
How does eCXD do this?
The eCXD certification tests a candidate’s technical understanding of x86/x64 Assembly, programming concepts, reverse engineering, software debugging and Windows/Linux internals through an exam that has been modeled after real-world software exploitation scenarios and features binaries protected by multiple anti-exploit mechanisms, hardened hosts and other limitations.
eCXD for Teams
Looking to ensure your team members can discover vulnerabilities and debug software? The eCXD provides you with the peace of mind to know your team members can successfully bypass modern anti-exploit mechanisms and overcome limitations during exploit development. This certification is critical for any teams or team members responsible for securing your software and business.

eCXD Learning Objectives
eLearnSecurity by INE certifications allow students to get hands-on, real-world experience as they complete their studies rather than information dumping. In fact, the eCXD is the only certification for Exploit Developers that evaluates your ability to use advanced Windows and Linux exploit development techniques, inside a fully featured and real-world environment. Instead of putting you through a series of multiple-choice questions, you'll perform a software vulnerability identification and exploitation against actual Windows and Linux software. The exam engagement is modeled after real-world software exploitation scenarios and features binaries protected by multiple anti-exploit mechanisms, hardened hosts and other limitations. To pass this exam, you need to prove mastery over a multitude of areas including software debugging, shellcoding, reverse engineering, and more. INE's Exploit Development Student learning path provides you with all the knowledge needed to pass this exam.
Windows and Linux internals
Certify your knowledge of Windows and Linux internals.
Reverse engineering (x86 and x64 platforms)
Prove you know how to analyze hardware or software without having access to the source code or design documents.
Showcase your ability to identify, repair, and remove errors in within software.
Learn how to defend against remote shells before and after the command has been executed.
Windows and Linux Exploit Development
Highlight your knowledge of Windows and Linux exploit development processes and methodologies.
Bypassing Modern Anti-Exploit Mechanisms
From ASLR/PIE and Stack Cookie to NX/DEP and RELRO, you'll develop the skills needed to bypass anti-exploit mechanisms.
Exploiting Hardened Hosts
Learn how to use tools such as Immunity Debugger, x32dbg, Mona, Pwntools, GDB, and Ropper to quickly and efficiently exploit hardened hosts.
