HackerOne Expands Free Hacker101 Web Training Platform with HackEDU Partnership
the leading hacker-powered security platform, today announced the
expansion of its free online hacker training program, Hacker101
through a partnership with interactive cybersecurity training company HackEDU.
Hacker101 is giving away the first of its kind sandboxed training
environments, modeled after five real-world vulnerability reports.
HackerOne and HackEDU are committed to empowering the hacker community
by providing access to world-class training materials. The new
HackEDU-developed vulnerability sandboxes are the latest in their
interactive coursework available to hackers and join existing Hacker101
interactive content, coursework and capture
the flag (CTF) challenges.
The first five featured vulnerability sandboxes were inspired by some of
the most popular publicly disclosed reports on HackerOne's Hacktivity.
With over 6,000 vulnerability reports listed, Hacktivity is the world's
largest public activity feed of vulnerabilities found, rewarded,
resolved and disclosed. The five sandboxes available feature the
following replicated vulnerabilities:
These latest Hacker101 training environments were designed and developed
by HackEDU for hackers or developers interested in practicing real-world
hacking techniques in a safe and legal environment. Since HackerOne's
Hacker101 launched in January 2018, thousands of individuals have become
better hackers by participating in the free challenges and coursework.
"Hacking is a highly sought after skill, but it is not always clear how
to get started or advance to the next level. This is why we started
Hacker101," said Cody Brocious, HackerOne security researcher and Head
of Hacker Education. "Now with HackEDU's sandboxes and interactive
lessons, hackers can test their skills like never before. With simulated
real-world bugs -- originally discovered by top bug hunters in the
community -- you will learn something new with these latest sandboxes,
no matter your skill level."
"HackEDU is proud to offer real-world applications with real-world
vulnerabilities found on HackerOne's platform," said Jared Ablon,
HackEDU's CEO. "With this addition to HackEDU's current offerings, users
can explore how vulnerabilities manifest themselves in applications that
people use everyday which enhances the learning process for both
attackers and defenders."
Sandboxes are now available along with HackEDU's other current
content offerings of both public
vulnerabilities and Secure
Development Training. All of these courses are now available for
tailoring programs for software developers, security champions, and
application security professionals.
