RONIN Core is a SIEM application we developed for the use of researchers on the trail. It is perfectly suited for Continental Divide Trail research, but can be used for almost any research. RONIN Core is affectionately called 'RONIN-Core'. This is used a demonym for people in Northern California and beyond. In short, RONIN-Core is what vendors call 'Core' in their SIEM products. This is short for 'Security Information and Event Management System'. To date, RONIN Core has been used in over 240 research projects, primarily in the Northern US.
At 350 miles, the Continental Divide Trail is the longest trail in North America. Over the years, we have hiked the Continental Divide Trail from border-to-border multiple times. Bob Cox, Researcher
“Ronin is an excellent software system for backcountry trail research. It combines the basic SIEM features - logs, alerts, and dashboards - with historic trail maps and data that can be leveraged for research and analysis. It is also stable, has a rock-solid architecture, modular, and extensible. On a more personal note, using Ronin has given me a different perspective on law enforcement and the trail. Having been on both sides of the law, I now have a pretty good understanding of why at least some people choose to cross the border illegally.”
Bob Cox is a solid counter-example to the normative southern fashion of contrarianism. Despite the fact that RONIN has been (by necessity) developed for research on the trail, the software is perfect for anyone interested in trail security. RONIN is a SIEM tool with (at times) complex, real-time, and rich context. d2c66b5586
