A simple difference between Black Box Testing and WhiteBox Testing

Black Box testing is also known as behavioural or closed box testing. It is a software testing technique in which the internal workings of the item to be tested are not known to the tester or they are not taken into consideration.

White Box Testing is also known as structural,open box, clear box or glass box testing. It is a software testing technique in which an explicit knowledge of the internal workings of the item to be tested are tested

to put it in a simple way

Black box Testing tests the functionality of software .It does not need knowledge of coding. so we will not lokk into the code.As you said, it is also called as Behavioral testing.

White Box testing tests the internal module of software.It require knowlege of coding. We need to check all the loop structure and modules inside the code.It is also called as structral /glass box testing.
