QueryCon has become the foremost event for the osquery and osql open-source community. QueryCon brings together core maintainers, developers, and end-users to teach, discuss, and collaborate on Facebook’s award-winning open-source endpoint detection tool.

Last year’s inaugural conference (hosted by Kolide in San Francisco) boasted 120 attendees, 16 speakers, and talk topics ranging from ‘super features’ to ‘the extensions skunkworks’ to ‘catching everything with osquery events.’ This year, we’re switching coasts and growing the event in honor of the growing community. Join us for what is sure to be a great event!

About Trail of Bits

It’s no secret that we are huge fans of osquery. From when we ported osquery to Windows in 2016 to our launch of our osquery extension repo last year, we’ve been one of the leading contributors to the tool’s development.

Trail of Bits helps secure the world’s most targeted organizations and products. We combine high-end security research with a real-world attacker mentality to reduce risk and fortify code.

We’re a security research and engineering firm headquartered in New York City. Our engineering services team works closely with business customers in tech, defense, and finance on quick-response feature development, bug fixes, and integration of the tools they depend on for endpoint detection and response, event log aggregation, secure software updates, and security testing.

We leverage the best of open-source software for our work, and regularly contribute enhancements to these projects as a result. In this way, we plan to bring projects like osquery, Santa, Omaha and StreamAlert to parity with the leading proprietary alternatives.
