Cyberjutsu is an approachable and enlightening guide to modern cyber security and espionage, based on secret techniques shared in ancient Japanese ninja scrolls. Like Sun Tzu’s Art of War for Modern Business, this book uses ancient ninja scrolls as the foundation for teaching readers about cyber-warfare, espionage and security.
Cyberjutsu brings the tactics, techniques, and procedures ninjas used in feudal Japan into today’s cyber security battlefield, creating an essential handbook for cyber defenders. The book uses authentic Japanese scrolls to analyze how real ninjas thought about and practiced information assurance, security, infiltration, and espionage that often required covert, unauthorized access to heavily fortified organizations–many of the same concepts cyber security professionals deal with every day. Readers learn: how to map a network like an adversary; how to place network sensors like a ninja; how ninja used social engineering techniques to slip into castles and how ninja installed backdoors and implants into castles; anti-attribution tactics used by ninja to protect their employer and punish the enemy; ninja command and control communication (C2) techniques and much more!
