What is CompTIA PenTest+?
The CompTIA PenTest+ certification is a vendor-neutral, internationally targeted validation of intermediate-level penetration testing (or pen testing) knowledge and skills. It focuses on the latest pen testing techniques, attack surfaces, vulnerability management, post-delivery and compliance tasks.
The skills covered by CompTIA PenTest+ help companies comply with regulations, such as PCI-DSS and NIST 800-53 Risk Management Framework (RMF), which require pen tests, vulnerability assessments and reports. CompTIA PenTest+ is approved under the Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 8140/8570.01-M and under ANSI/ISO standard 17024.
What is the difference between CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-001 and PT0-002?
The exam domains covered in CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-001 and PT0-002 are not vastly different, as they are still relevant to the job roles, but you will see some slight changes.
We changed the name of exam domain 2.0 from Information Gathering and Vulnerability Identification to Information Gathering and Vulnerability Scanning.We also swapped the order of two domains – what was formerly 5.0 Reporting and Communication is now 4.0, (with the same name), and what was formerly 4.0 Penetration Testing Tools is now 5.0 Tools and Code Analysis.
However, the new CompTIA PenTest+ (PT0-002) focuses on the most up to date and current skills needed for the following tasks:
● Planning and scoping a penetration testing engagement
● Understanding legal and compliance requirements
● Performing vulnerability scanning and penetration testing using appropriate tools and techniques, and then analyzing the results
● Producing a written report containing proposed remediation techniques, effectively communicating results to the management team and providing practical recommendations
This is equivalent to three to four years of hands-on experience working in a security consultant or penetration tester job role. CompTIA PenTest+ is recommended to follow CompTIA Security+ on the CompTIA cybersecurity career pathway.
The exam purpose and audience are similar in both CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-001 and PT0-002 with the same number of exam domains, titles and page count. However, we consolidated the exam objectives down from 24 to 21 to improve the instructional design and merge similar topics.
Specifically, these changes have been made from CompTIA PenTest+ PT0-001 to PT0-002:
Newer techniques for pen testing an expanded attack surface
Emphasis on demonstrating an ethical hacking mindset given various scenarios
More focus on the hands-on tasks and automation required for vulnerability management
More focus on code analysis to emphasize the growing need to identify and analyze code during a penetration test (Note: Code development is not included on CompTIA PenTest+)
