Hack The Box is an online platform which allows its users to test, train and enhance their penetration testing skills as well as to exchange ideas and methodologies with other members of similar interests.

The platform provides a wealth of challenges — in the form of virtual machines — simulating real-world security issues and vulnerabilities, that are constantly refreshed, provided and updated by the community. Some of them simulating real-world scenarios and some of them leaning more towards a CTF style of challenge.

Hack The Box innovates by constantly providing fresh and curated hacking challenges, into a fully gamified, immersive and intuitive environment.

The platform brings together security researchers, pentesters, infosec professionals, academia and students, making it the social network for ethical hackers and infosec enthusiasts, counting more than 160k members and growing dynamically.

Moreover, Hack The Box users are able to opt-in and apply for security-related job openings. Most positions are rank-restricted; so our users must prove their ability on our active machines before being able to apply.
