Ethical hacking involves identifying weaknesses in computer systems or networks – but instead of exploiting those weaknesses, as malicious hacking does, the purpose is to devise countermeasures which overcome those weaknesses. Essentially, the aim is to improve security for all.

Ethical hackers are also known as white hat hackers, and they operate by permission of whoever owns the computer system or network they are hacking. They report all the weaknesses they have identified to the owner, as well as informing hardware and software vendors of any vulnerabilities they have found. They protect the privacy of the organization which has been hacked.
