Hacker Gateway is a modern, open-source site built by a computer scientist and veteran challenger from Argentina. The site is intended for hackers of all skill levels, and spans several challenge categories, including cryptography, steganography and web, with more to be added in the future. The challenges go from pretty easy to very hard, and subtle hints are given when appropriate so that they never feel unfair.
If you want to put your hacking skills to the test, Hacker Gateway is the site for you!
Quote from hdsWorld of Wargame is a spanish wargame that was created back in 2009 to help spanish speakers begin with information security challenges and one of the few still running, it is aimed for starters so you can find challenges from very easy to medium difficulty.
We have seven categories distributed across 101 challenges:
- Basic cryptography
- A lot of steganography challenges
- Identification of images related to computers
- CAPTCHA cracking
- Web application security
- And miscellaneous
The wargame includes a shop where you can buy hints with points, a system to earn points when rating a challenge, a list of solutions from users (3.5k approximately), and digital "gifts" you can find on your profile page that are given while solving the problems.
I hope you enjoy it and solve all the challenges!

I'm involved with a few Alternate Reality Games and it made me interested in puzzles like crypto, steg, etc for a while - I also get along with different people involved who don't know how to evaluate their skills when they start out. I had been thinking about starting an ARG for a while but I couldn't think of a plot, so I compromised and made a puzzle site that would let users gauge themselves.
In specific, having been involved with some cicada and OTP22 challenges has given me a perspective on hidden images in images, text, and even audio - as well as doing a lot of XOR.
I haven't quite gone all-out with BPSK31 like OTP22 does, but there are still infinite possibilities.
