Can you practice white hat hacking without getting into trouble?

September 26, 2022

Practicing ethical hacking can be challenging, but there are many tools and test environments available to aspiring white hat hackers.

As a San Diego State University Cyber Tech Academy student, you will learn and refine your skills in Haiku Pro, an online lab environment similar to a flight simulator for hacking. Ethical Hacking students receive a six-month Haiku Pro license as part of their enrollment, which allows for continued practice after completing the Ethical Hacking certificate.

As you continue to develop your ethical hacking skills, Capture the Flag (CTF) tournaments and intentionally vulnerable websites offer ways to ethically practice white hat hacking in the wild.
