    eCRE Learning Objectives

    eLearnSecurity by INE certifications allow you to work through cyber security challenges in a professional setting rather than assessing your ability to memorize information. The eCRE takes this a step further by challenging you to navigate real-world scenarios which include analysis of complex algorithms and anti-obfuscation techniques. In addition, you'll learn different methods to locate the important algorithms, become familiar with how to bypass anti-reversing techniques, gain a thorough understanding of Ring3 Windows Internal Structures, and be asked to perform full manual unpacking on packed executables in addition to completing practice-based course with dozens of guided exercises.
