Vartai Security develops custom simulation labs hosted through our partner Hack The Box ( We find that learning and developing the skills necessary to remain relevant in the cyber industry require continual hands-on, real-world simulation practices that seek to mimic compromise scenarios based on real world assessments. Our current pro lab deployed at Hack The Box, OFFSHORE, is designed to simulate a real-world penetration test, starting from an external position on the internet and gaining a foothold inside a simulated corporate Windows Active Directory network. Users will have to pivot and jump across trust boundaries to complete the lab. Players will have the opportunity to attack 16 hosts of various operating system types and versions to obtain 29 flags across a realistic Active Directory lab environment with various standalone challenges hidden throughout. The Active Directory lab simulates the look and feel of a real-world corporate network complete with very active simulated users and other elements of a busy enterprise. The lab is designed to start out relatively easy and progress in difficulty throughout. Users will start from an external perspective and have to penetrate the “DMZ” and then move laterally through the CORP.LOCAL, DEV, ADMIN and CLIENT forests to complete the lab.This lab is intended to expose participants to:

  • Web Application Attacks
  • Enumeration
  • Exploitation of Common and Obscure Real-world Active Directory Flaws
  • Local Privilege Escalation
  • Lateral Movement and Crossing Trust Boundaries
  • Evading Endpoint Protections
  • Reverse Engineering
  • Out-of-the-box Thinking


We designed Offshore to appeal to a wide variety of users, from junior-level to seasoned testers as well as infosec hobbyists and even blue teamers.
