Certified OSWEs have a clear and practical understanding of white box web application assessment and security. They’ve proven their ability to review advanced source code in web apps, identify vulnerabilities, and exploit them.
OSCEs have expert-level penetration testing skills. They have proven that they can craft their own exploits, execute attacks to compromise systems, and gain administrative access. The intense 48-hour exam also demonstrates that OSCEs have an above-average degree of persistence, determination, and ability to perform under pressure.
OSWPs are able to identify existing encryptions and vulnerabilities in 802.11 networks. They can circumvent network security restrictions and recover the encryption keys in use.
An OSCP has demonstrated the ability to use persistence, creativity, and perceptiveness to identify vulnerabilities and execute organized attacks under tight time constraints.
