Today, we are proud to announce the launch of Trickest Community Edition. This release marks a new era in cybersecurity, democratizing access to advanced security tools and workflow orchestration. Designed to empower a diverse spectrum of users - from academia and individual researchers to educators and bug bounty hunters - the Community Edition is a testament to our commitment of making elite cybersecurity resources accessible to all.

In conjunction with the launch, we are excited to welcome Ben Sadeghipour, also known as NahamSec, a renowned figure in the ethical hacking and bug bounty hunting world, to our advisory team. His expertise and insights in offensive security and bug bounty hunting are set to strengthen the capabilities of our platform, supporting our dedication to innovation and community empowerment.

A key highlight of the Community Edition is the introduction of Self-Hosted Execution, enabling users to connect their machines in order to achieve a highly customizable and controlled execution environment. This feature enhances the flexibility and scalability of security operations as a response to the unique needs of our users.

Furthermore, our shift to Open Access signifies a revolutionary step in inclusivity, allowing ethical hackers, educators, researchers, and bug bounty hunters to sign up on the platform at any time.

The Community Edition: Democratizing Offensive Cybersecurity

The Community Edition of Trickest Offensive Security Orchestration Platform offers an exceptional opportunity for users to use open-source tools and custom-made scripts to build and run workflows. It aligns with Trickest's mission to democratize access to state-of-the-art security orchestration capabilities, ensuring that even individual researchers and bug bounty hunters can utilize high-level security workflows and methodologies.

Key features of the Community Edition include:

Run Units (RU)

  • We have introduced a new execution metric called Run Units (RU).

Run Units

  • All users will receive 12,000 FREE RUs on Trickest Managed infrastructure with unlimited validity, allowing you to have greater flexibility and control.
  • Usage calculation: For every minute that a managed default machine is used in workflow execution, 2 RU are consumed from the user's available RU. See below about default managed machines.

Run Units with Trickest Managed Infrastructure (Machines)

We are excited to announce that we now offer Pre-Paid Run Units for our Trickest managed infrastructure. This new option is specifically designed explicitly for bug bounty hunters, researchers, and educators who need to run machines efficiently while taking full advantage of the Trickest feature. With the Pre-Paid Run Units, you can now enjoy a smoother and more seamless experience when running machines on Trickest managed infrastructure. All purchased RUs have unlimited validity, offering you greater flexibility and control over your usage.
