Welcome to EDSC 2014, Seattle's second annual embedded device security conference. We strive to bring the keenest minds in embedded security together for two days of excellent content and unique interactions in the beautiful Puget Sound.

This year's conference will be held at Trinity Club in Seattle, providing a unique conference experience in the heart of Pioneer Square.

We will also be offering two-day trainings on November 18-19, 2014.


About EDSC

EDSC is a security conference focusing on embedded systems, hardware, and anything behind the silicon curtain. Embedded testing is a rapidly expanding area of the security industry staying current is important for engineers, researchers, and testers alike. EDSC will bring the top thought leaders in the embedded security field together for two days to share knowledge, techniques, and research.

  EDSC goals are to:

  • Promote a common forum to discuss knowledge and research of embedded security.
  • Accelerate the frontier of new research in the field, and adoption of current research by the industry.
  • Establish a strong community where both researchers and industry professionals can interact on a similar intellectual playing field.

Topics of Interest

Unlike many of the other conferences out there today focused on software and network security, with hardware security sprinkled in, EDSC is focused on security related research of embedded systems and related technologies as our primary focus.

  • Embedded devices
  • Control systems
  • SCADA
  • Mobile devices
  • Hardware components
  • Interconnects (e.g. busses including I2C, SPI, CAN, PCI)
