This is the homepage for the 2017 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 14th 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.


Please Register Now

Admission to the BASC is TBD [1] Registration is required for breakfast, lunch, and the evening social time. We will do everything possible to accommodate late registrants but the facility and food are limited.


Opening Keynote: Writing Code to Save the World

Chris Poulin, Booz Allen Hamilton

Every application that you create, every line of code that you type, has the potential to do good or cause harm. Your app may allow banks to transfer funds used to find a cure for cancer, optimize processing of food so that it's affordable to the poor and starving, and even an instant messaging app--ostensibly just a social distraction--can allow repressed citizens to mount a revolution. At the same time, a single line of poorly written code or a mistake in the implementation of an authentication mechanism, can reroute millions of dollars away from a cancer research lab into the pockets of cybercriminal, allow terrorists to taint the food supply, or enable the continued crimes against humanity by an autocratic regime. The OWASP provides guidance on how to write more secure code, and you'll get plenty of training and hands-on practice at BASC; beyond coding hygiene, how can you solve the problem of security by writing applications that solve the larger problems? Chris Poulin explores the potential to not just write secure code, but to create apps that solve the bigger security issues.
