Welcome to hackint!

hackint is a communication network for the hacker community, but anyone is welcome to use the network. Hackint is fully ircv3.1 compatible.
We have a new policy on anonymous access.
Feb 2nd 2015: Access from i2p is no longer possible. This is due to the resource hungry i2p software, compared to other parts of the irc ecosystem, as well as due to very low usage (avg 1-2 users max). We're sorry for this and hope to remedy the situation in the future; at present, however, due to resource shortage this step has become necessary.

Server List

If you are connecting from the internet, not using Tor or i2p, please use our DNS round robin domain. We encourage you to use TLS when connecting to the hackint irc network. Please use port 9999 for this. Strange certificates may be presented on other SSL ports.

Current SSL Root Certificate

All server's client connection certificates are currently signed by hackint-cacert.pem (the CA cert gpg signed by rdnzl, angelos (more signatures to follow))

Establishing a secure connection

To verify the authenticity of the server you connect to, download hackint-cacert.pem and connect to the hackint irc network using a command like this:

/server -ssl -ssl_verify -ssl_cafile /PATH/TO/hackint-cacert.pem irc.hackint.org 9999
