Become an AppSec Village Supporter

Show your support for AppSec Village, we are dependent on the support and enthusiasm of the community.


The first-ever AppSec Village was a resounding success. And we are pumped to be back bigger and better. 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 how to 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 will be a thrill!
