I just passed the network+ exam I have to say it was pretty easy. ( later I am going to go back to networking and do the CISCO exams)
But now I am looking to get certified in security as well.
I am curious what the hardest security certification test I can take given that I have had minimal to no work experience in this area (though I am really good at it and have done alot of work with it in my free time over the years, would they ever waive the requirements ).
I have read that CISSP is the hardest but requires some prerequisites before taking it?

My second question is what is the hardest computer hardware exam. I only know of A+ exams which look really easy after having the network+ , (knowning I can do security+) and some hardware knowledge down?

My third question I am also considering getting some kind of linux/unix or system administrator certificate (non-microsoft based though).
What exactly is the best think to get with this (i.e the hardest and the one that most stands out) is it comptia server+ , linux+ , or LPI... or something else that I don't know about?

Looking for the hardest ones that I can take in these areas.
Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
