"Test lab v. 11" will be launched on June 30, 2017
The "Test lab" contain penetration testing laboratories that emulate an IT infrastructure of real companies and are created for a legal pentesting and improving penetrations skills. Laboratories are always unique and include the most recent and known vulnerabilities. The "Test lab" presented as a computer network of virtual companies containing widely distributed misconfigurations and vulnerabilities. Participants, playing a pentester role, are trying to exploit them, and in case of success gain access to particular lab nodes which contain a token. The winner is the one who collects all tokens. Penetration testing in labs is made based on a "grey box" methodology: participants have network infrastructure information in form of schema and a text description. Participants can use different methods of penetrating - exploiting network services, web, social engineering, buffer overflow and etc.
Developing "Test lab" labs we try to cover almost all IT areas: network security, security of OSs and applications. Participants are supposed to exploit the variety of vulnerabilities in network components and cryptographic mechanisms, in configurations and code, and also to use a human factor. The outstanding feature of «Test lab» is the unique story with whole scenery which links tasks with each other. For example, one can use already found mail credentials to attack other services and machines (Active Directory, for example). This is more real than standalone tasks in CTF contests which can be done separately.
We are proud to announce the launch of new lab - "Test lab v.11". As with the previous lab, it is based on actual attack methods, while IT infrastructure of the lab is similar to real company’s network as close as it can be. If you want to take part in lab developing, gain more knowledge or stand out from the crowd showing your skills - send interesting tasks to email@example.com with the "2f2874e4549aef222b055de6088c8fef" in subject.
Check your hacking skills in the current "Test lab". Cheers!
