Provides a comprehensive introduction to cryptographic history, current technology, best practices and known attacker techniques. A great deal of material is covered in a relatively compact program.
This course gives is perfect to start learning cryptography, explanations are detailed, topics carefully selected combining theory with real world examples and making emphasis in important details.

A difficult, but rewarding course. Much more theoretical than I was expecting, and I would suggest a strong Maths background for anybody considering taking the course.

This is a really exciting and enjoyable course. I've learnt a lot. The segments are structured very well, and the assessment questions and exercises are very helpful.

Very clear yet challenging introduction to basic cryptography concepts. Be sure to take notes and practice as much as possible with the modular arithmetic presented.
創建者 Michael T•
I enjoyed the not-too-much-mathematical approach of diging into crypto basics. All popular (practical) questions arise and are discussed in understandable manner.
創建者 Hilmi E•
Excellent course.. A wonderful mix of sound theory and practical applications. Delivered by one of the top experts in the field and his excellent support team..

I really enjoyed Dan's lectures; in my opiniont the course is more mathematical/theoretical and less real world examples. But that's the spirit of academy! :)
創建者 Eduardo M P T•
Very good course, it's easy to understand the concepts and the programming assignments help to understand the details of the implementation of the algorithms.
Before I started this lecture I would not expected it to be that good, but now I feel really good about it and deeply impressed by it's quality. Thank you

Thank you very much for this course! It was incredibly helpful. It will allow me to further investigate this topic. I'm looking forward for Cryptography 2
創建者 Simon M•
Great course. It's in depth and requires some effort, especially if working full time, but really great theory based overview of common crypto concepts.
創建者 Pedro R•
Amazing!!! It was long, but totally worth it. I hardly believe that such material is given for free in this platform. Thanks a lot to Dan for the course.

I started this course just for fun and out of curiosity. By the time the course ended, I was in love with crypto. Very well explained, very good course.
創建者 Trial E•
This course really teaches the theory I was missing while using all the latest crypto tech practically and understanding it conceptually. Thank you Dan!
創建者 Herbert K•
The explanations are clear and the topics are relevant, interesting, and well explained. I have a background in computing science and machine learning.

This is a fantastic course. It has greatly kindled my interest in cryptography, and I look forward to learning more on the subject from Prof Dan Boneh.
創建者 Aneesh S•
The topics were a bit difficult, but the teaching style made it easy to understand. Next time Please show us the programming section of cryptography.

Exceptional material covered by Prof. Dan Boneh! His lectures are a treasure and I am sure I will keep going back to them to refresh my foundations.
創建者 Ruchit R•
Was fast paced and very well designed course. Enjoyed all the aspects of the course and got to know many things regarding cryptography in practice.
創建者 Chitrang S•
Excellent Course. Requires lot of patience but the rewards are extremely great.
Learned a lot about internals mathematics involved in Cryptography.
創建者 Jing Q•
Great introduction to cryptography. I have learned a lot from it, but still, there is much to study in this field. Surely I would come back again.
創建者 Pierre D•
This course is brillant, with awesome (optional) coding problems to learn who to go from theory to practice! Thanks for these wonderful materials.
創建者 Christian F•
I think this course was an ecelent course. Too short and too many information. High-level teach by amazing Harvard professor. Thanks Dan Boneh.
創建者 Mohamud A J•
Excellent course material with even more excellent Professor. thank you prof. for your generosity. thank you coursera for making this available.
創建者 Vivient R•
Thank you very much for anyone that make this course very interactive and fun. Special thank's for Prof. Dan Boneh as Instructor in this course.

No matter whether you know what Cryptography is, and if you don't know whether you like it, you'll find the answer after taking this course.
