About the blog

Welcome to Network Jutsu! This blog was created back in 2011 when the author was heavily invested in CCIE studies. It was a way for him to document as much as he could with his progress of my CCIE pursuit and/or document what he learned. However, work and life get in the way and he has been in and out of his pursuit of the elusive CCIE number for several years now. Today, the blog is used to document stuff related to networking, Linux, network security, and sometimes IT related home projects.
