I'll discuss the role of the Higgs boson as a probe of the hidden  sector. The latter is of particular importance in cosmology as it  may host dark matter and the inflaton. Due to its scalar nature, the  Higgs boson provides a unique handle on properties of such Standard  Model-singlet states.

This framework also offers interesting insights into the question of vacuum metastability and leads to specific signatures at the LHC.
