The eLearnSecurity Certified Reverse Engineer (eCRE) is awarded to reverse engineers after passing a rigorous, practical examination.
Here are some ways eLearnSecurity Certified Reverse Engineer certification is different from conventional certification:
- Ensures that the candidate has a strong understanding of theoretical aspects behind reverse engineering through a challenging multiple choice pre-exam.
- Establishes that the candidate can perform a thorough reverse engineering scenario in practice through a 100% practical exam.
- Rewards certification to only those applications that receive greater than a 84% score on their pre-test then perform a thorough reverse engineering scenario.
By obtaining the eCRE, your skills in the following areas will be assessed and certified:
- Basics of IA-32 CPU architecture
- Basics of stack operations
- Windows API’s
- PE format
- Reverse engineering of Windows based applications
- Analysis of complex algorithms
- Anti-obfuscation techniques
- Analysis of obfuscated code
The eCRE is a certification for individuals with a highly technical understanding of networks, systems and cyber attacks. Everyone can attempt the certification exam, however, below are suggested prerequisites for a successful outcome:
- Understanding a letter of engagement and the basics related to an Incident Response engagement
- Deep understanding of networking concepts
- Knowledge of Incident Response processes and methodologies
- Packet/traffic analysis
- Ability to correlate events and logs
- Familiarly with tools such as Wireshark, ELK & Splunk
- Attacker Techniques, Tactics & Procedures
- How to detect all stages of the “Cyber Kill Chain”
- Familiarity with ELK and Splunk searches
- Ability to effectively analyze thousands of events within a SIEM
- Windows (and Sysmon) events
- Attacker activity detection through process analysis
eLearnSecurity’s eCRE is divided in two steps: a theoretical assessment through a multiple choice test and a practical assessment.

1. Enroll in the Reverse Engineering Professional learning path through INE’s Cyber Security Pass.
The Reverse Engineering Professional learning path takes you from a basic-intermediate understanding of reverse engineering to a Professional level and prepares you for the eCRE exam with the necessary theory and a number of hands-on practical challenges similar to the final exam.
