I'm a security professional in training. I'm currently working on my B.S in Computer Science with a focus in network security. I also currently possess a CCNA, and plan on obtaining the CCNP and CISSP/CCSP.

A while ago browsing around the net I stumbled across a security certification by EC-Council, the Certified Ethical Hacker (CEH). Out of curiosity, does anyone know/or have experience with whether or not this is an industry recognized professional certification or is it a lower profile certification such as Network+, A+, Security+, or is it a total joke to industry professionals?

Any thoughts?
