I'm not sure what you're asking here, but at every US airport, you have to go through TSA to get to any gate. If you're coming into BOS on an international flight and connecting to a domestic flight, you go through standard TSA security after you clear Customs. If you have some duty-free liquids in the sealed bags, they can go through the checkpoint as a carry-on item. Otherwise, it's like going to the airport for a domestic flight. Pre-Check if you have it, etc.

International arrivals come into BOS Terminal E. Domestic departures, with few exceptions, leave from one of the other terminals. There are no airside connections between terminals. You'll generally complete the customs and immigration process, exit Terminal E to a shuttle bus or a walking route (usually through the central parking garage; it's well signed) and enter the other terminal exactly like any other departing domestic passenger would. Before you do this, check what terminal your departure airline uses. (Regarding the two in your profile: DL uses A, AA uses B.)

If you have bags that were checked through to your final destination, you pick them up at E, clear customs with them, and re-check them at a drop-off spot immediately outside customs. You don't have to lug them to your departure terminal.

There is not a special checkpoint after customs at Logan for connecting passengers. You have to go through the standard checkpoint at whichever terminal your connecting flight is departing from.

Exactly. Perhaps my previous post wasn't clear. Once you clear customs (and perhaps re-check any bags that were checked through to your domestic destination) you are like any other passenger who walks into your domestic departure terminal.
