Welcome

This is the homepage for the 2018 Boston Application Security Conference (BASC). *Note that the conference will be free but training and workshops may incur a fee*. Conference will take place 8:30am to 6:30pm on Saturday, October 27th at

The BASC will be a free, one day, informal conference, aimed at increasing awareness and knowledge of application security in the greater Boston area. While many of the presentations will cover state-of-the-art application security concepts, the BASC is intended to appeal to a wide-array of attendees. Application security professionals, professional software developers, software quality engineers, computer science students, and security software vendors should be able to come to the BASC, learn, and hopefully enjoy themselves at the same time.
