In order to work in network sec operations you will need a degree and certifications. Nothing per se will give you the edge, the cracker community is varied and some are truly "elite" to use their word for it.

As far as degree, you should be thinking atleast a B.S. and for certs start with SCNA, SCNP, etc leading up to the CISSP. Most certs require verifiable experience. Theres another called CEH, but for the most part nobody cares about it and the skill it takes to pass it is just above script kiddie. It helps to land a job, don't get me wrong I have it, but in the Net Sec community it isnt higher regarded

Two other things, learn *nix(command line) and learn to program
