*	The Hackademic Challenges is an open source project that can be used
to test and improve one's knowledge of web application security. 

 

*	The Hackademic Challenges project implements realistic scenarios
with known vulnerabilities in a safe, controllable environment. Users can
attempt to discover and exploit these vulnerabilities in order to learn
important concepts of information security through the attacker's
perspective. 

 

*	They have been especially designed for use in a classroom
environment where they have been proved a valuable educational tool. Using
hackademic challenges students have the chance to experience application
security in a realistic environment, something that triggers their interest
and provokes a lot of interesting discussions. 

 

*	The Hackademic Challenges are currently used in several Universities
and have received very positive feedback from both professors and students. 

 

As always, your suggestions and contributions would be greatly appreciated.


 

Thanks,

- Paulo
