RootContest provides a free and legal
environment for hackers to test and expand their
skills. RootContest simulates the exploitation of
genuine network and application layer security
vulnerabilities, and allows users to exploit them
in an attempt to take control of the 'root' account
of the servers they are attacking. The war games
provided by RootContest are, and always will be
hosted under controlled conditions. This means that
each and every server donated to RootContest, has
been donated with express permission from the owner
for it to be used for the purposes of exploitation.
As a direct result RootContest members do not have to constantly worry about the legal implications their actions may cause, promoting and encouraging the use of free and legal hacker wargames.
