40+ Custom Vulnerable hosts

The Virtual Hacking Labs is a full penetration testing lab designed to learn the practical side of penetration testing and sharpen your practical skills. The labs contain many real world scenarios with vulnerable Linux and Windows hosts, domain controllers, webservers, mail servers, firewalls, web applications and many more systems, services and protocols. Every system in the labs is unique and configured to contribute to a specific learning experience involving one or more attack vectors.

We keep your knowledge and experience up-to-date by updating our labs with recently discovered vulnerabilities. The penetration testing labs follow a black box approach which means that little information is given about the hosts as if you were engaging on a real penetration test. Access to the Virtual Hacking Labs is provided by VPN connection that connects you to the lab network as if it is a real company network.

Penetration Testing Course

Along with the lab access we provide written courseware that will teach you the basics of penetration testing and provide a solid foundation to successfully compromise the vulnerable hosts in the training labs. The courseware is written in a way that is easily understandable for anyone new to the field of penetration testing and ethical hacking. We start with the very basics of penetration testing such as port scanning and vulnerability identification and gradually increase the difficulty by covering more advanced subjects such as compiling exploit and privilege escalation techniques.

The training materials are also provided as a downloadable e-book for students purchasing a Month pass or greater.

Week Pass

Certificate of Completion

For those who managed to get root/administrator access on at least 20 lab machines can request a certificate of completion. This trophy consists of a PDF certificate with your name and a set of badges to use for social media such as LinkedIn. The VHL Certificate of Completion is included at no additional cost with a month pass and greater.

Personal Reset Interface

The Virtual Hacking Labs reset panel can be used to reset hosts in the lab network back to their original state. Resetting a host is particularly useful when a host is left in a state where it is not vulnerable anymore. Resetting the host will give you a fresh start on the machine. Every student is allowed to reset hosts in the lab every 15 minutes through the reset panel. This guarantees an effective learning experience as designed without delays.

Personal Reset Interface

Student panel

All students have access to a dedicated student panel that can be used to track your course and lab progress. This panel also provides information about the lab machines, including hints for anyone that’s stuck at a specific box. This way you can choose what your learning path will look like. Do you prefer a full black box approach and root all machines on your own or do you prefer a balance between theoretical and practical part of the course with some help along the way?
