Cyberjutsu: Cybersecurity for the Modern Ninja

Cyberjutsu: Cybersecurity for the Modern Ninja

Authors: McCarty, Ben

Publisher: No Starch Press

ISBN: 9781718500556

Classification: Fiction

Synopsis: 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. You'll 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
    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!
