Appsec Village - DEF CON 30


We continue to be a resounding success at DEF CON and look forward to returning to in person events!

Our mission is to promote diverse voices and perspectives in an inclusive environment driven for and by the appsec community to increase education and awareness of application security methods and practices.

Come immerse yourself in everything the world of application security has to offer. Whether you are a red, blue or purple teamer, come learn from the best of the best on how to exploit software vulnerabilities and secure software.

Software is everywhere, and Application Security vulnerabilities are lurking around every corner making the software attack surface attractive for abuse. If you are just an AppSec n00b or launch deserialization attacks for fun and profit, you will find something to tickle your interest at the AppSec Village.

Software runs the world. Everything from IoT, medical devices, the power grid, smart cars, voting apps, all of it has software behind it. Such a variety of topics will be reflected in our cadre of guest speakers representing all backgrounds and walks of life.

AppSec Village welcomes all travelers to choose from talks by expert community members, an all AppSec-focused CTF, contests that challenge your mind and your skillz, and more. Bring your thirst for knowledge and passion for breaking things, and your visit to AppSec Village at DEF CON 30 will be a thrill!
