OSCP and OSCE are two of the best and most widely
used technical certifications in cybersecurity.
Many skilled penetration testers around the world
are chasing it and working even harder to pass
their arduous exam, and I was once one of
them. The OSCE and OSCP Certification are quite
different, particularly in terms of the level of
knowledge required to take the exam. As a result,
knowing the differences between them and which
one is best for you is essential before embarking
on your journey. The following table summarizes
the key differences between the OSCE and OSCP
certifications

  • Course content differences
  • In terms of content, I believe that the OSCP and
    OSCE certifications are complementary. However,
    while both certifications focus on new aspects
    and techniques of penetration testing, they
    complement each other in some ways.
  • OSCP material
  • The OSCP certification is more focused on the
    following topics
  • Enumerating and scanning
  • examining, repairing, and modifying public
    exploit codes
  • Privileges are being escalated in as many ways as
    possible.
  • Using SQL injection and file inclusion to obtain
    RCE
  • Learning the pivoting techniques

The first and most important aspect of OSCP that
tries to force students to master is information
gathering and enumeration. If you ask any OSCP
supervisor for a hint while doing the lab, the
first thing he will tell you is to keep
enumerating. I cannot emphasize this enough
enumeration is the key to OSCP certification
success. In fact, it is always the key to
discovering vulnerabilities in real life, which
is why OSCP focuses on it. One of the most
valuable lessons you learned from OSCP was how to
analyse and modify public exploits. That
incompetent penetration tester doing an exploit
against the client machine without knowing what
it's doing is one of the craziest things I've
ever seen. The OSCP team is aware of this and
works hard in this certification to make people
aware of it by selecting appropriate
exercises. In the certification, I've noticed
that a large percentage of the scenarios in the
lab are based on web application vulnerabilities.
This is comprehensive because most real-world
penetration occurs through a vulnerable web
application.

  • OSCE content
  • The OSCE certification focuses more on the
    following subjects
  • Debugging Windows binaries
  • Creating exploits
  • Backdooring executables
  • Bypassing Antivirus
  • Advanced exploitation of XSS to gain RCE
  • As I mentioned at the outset of this blog post,
    the OSCE certification was designed to teach
    penetration testers one of the rare skills of
    creating exploits and tools. The main goal of
    this certification is to teach you the
    fundamentals of thinking outside the box and
    discovering new ways to penetrate a network.
  • Backdooring executables and evading antivirus is
    a critical skill for a penetration tester to
    possess. This ability will come in handy,
    particularly when dealing with an external
    penetration test. In most cases, you have only
    two options in this situation. The first is to
    find a zero-day vulnerability, which will take a
    long time, or to use phishing techniques while
    backdooring files and bypassing Antivirus.

Exam differences To pass the OSCP certification,
you are given five machines with varying
situations that you must penetrate in order to
find flags and then submit them. Depending on how
many points you get from exploiting the machines,
you may be able to pass the exam with as few as
four machines. To pass the exam, you must obtain
70 points out of a possible 100. After passing
both certifications, I noticed that the OSCE exam
is more structured, in that you know what you
need to do next, as opposed to the OSCP exam.
Most exercises in the OSCP certification lack
structure. In many cases, you'll reach a point
where you've done everything you know and still
don't have the first access point or a way to
escalate privileges. That has been the most
frustrating aspect of OSCP for me. If you
complete a good lab report and send it to the
Offensive security team, you will receive a 10
point bonus on the OSCP exam. I know it doesn't
seem like much, but believe me when I say that
you can fail an exam for less than that and wish
you had sent the report to get those 10
points. Because the knowledge required to pass
the exam is more complex, the OSCE certification
is the next step after the OSCP
certification. I'm sorry, but I can't say
anything else about the exam because it violates
the Offensive security rules. However, all I can
say is that you must put in a lot of effort to
become certified. These two certifications are
not similar to QA exams. It will be so difficult
that you will begin to doubt your abilities.

Certification value Both certifications are among
the best and most widely used by cybersecurity
professionals. Someone who holds the OSCE is
highly respected because it serves as proof of
competence. I'm not saying this because I have
these two certifications, but trust me when I say
you can google them both and see what other
people have to say about them. They get this
value from years of giving a difficult exam. Many
other certifications on the market have excellent
course content, such as the SANS course, but the
exam format is QCM. Besides that, the cost is
prohibitively expensive, with only corporations
able to afford it. Employers are also aware of
this certification, and it is becoming a
requirement in job offers. I believe that in the
coming years, people will prefer OSCP
Certification more.
