Ronin - A Ruby Platform For Vulnerability Research And Exploit Development

Ronin is a Ruby platform for vulnerability research and exploit development. Ronin allows for the rapid development and distribution of code, Exploits, Payloads, Scanners, etc, via Repositories.


Ronin provides users with a powerful Ruby Console, pre-loaded with powerful convenience methods. In the Console one can work with data and automate complex tasks, with greater ease than the command-line.



Ronin ships with a preconfigured Database, that one can interact with from Ruby, without having to write any SQL.

>> HostName.tld('eu').urls.with_query_param('id')


Ronin provides a Repository system, allowing users to organize and share miscallaneous Data, Code, Exploits, Payloads, Scanners, etc.

$ ronin install git://


Ronin provides libraries with additional functionality, such as Exploitation and Scanning:

$ gem install ronin-exploits
