Welcome to Hackerville

Hackerville is an interactive website designed to support the security literacy project at Iowa State.

The web site is currently under construction

Proposed Hackerville.org layout

Hackerville will consist of a set of servers designed to support hands-on security literacy activities.

  1. www.hackerville.org:

Main web portal to access the lab materials.  The site will contain tools and web pages that do not require separate servers.  Things like traceroute, password checkers, DNS lookup, simple crypto examples, etc.  Will also contain the written lab assignments.  Any solutions will be hosted on the security-literacy website

  1. mail.hackerville.org

This server hosts a read only web based email server with user accounts for the cyber family and others.  The email server may have multiple password methods (single factor, and multi factor).  Students and teachers will be able to read email messages sent to the users of this server. For example students or teachers can use the server bad.hackerville.org to create spam or phishing email messages and have them sent to a user on this email server.

  1. tmi.hackerville.org

A social media site used to teach concepts of sharing.  Use the web site designed by Eric Rodine (MS project)

  1. games.hackerville.org

A web site for students to play games, will support logins.  Can be used to show malware, and also allow discussions about sharing information on-line.

  1. bank. hackerville.org

The hackerville bank.  This is a good site, and will have logins (single and maybe two factor).  Will have accounts for cyber family and maybe allow other accounts to be created.  Students will be able to compare this site with the fake bank located at bad.hackerville.org/bank when there is phishing.

  1. videos.hackerville.org

Web site to support downloading of videos.  No authentication, used to show malware, etc.  Can also be used to discuss over sharing from the cyber family.

Optional site to show authentication methods, maybe password breaking etc.  (Need to think more about this)
