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.
Cutting edge cryptography topics. Good explanations and slides, but pause button is highly recommended. Can be a bit too mathematical for the general public, and not very formal for mathematicians.

great introduction to crypto.
Enjoyable and well designed course. Challenging material and practical exercises.
Very very interesting topic. I like this course so much. It is the key to the information security. Thank you.

Stanford's MOOCs are the best! They are hard but always worth the effort. And can't wait for Cryptography II.

I have greatly enjoyed the course though learning has been slow for me as I have been out of touch too long.
von Lauris L•
Very hard course although explained very well, takes a lot of time to understand every concept but worth it.
von Sebastien A•
Great course, some difficulty reading notation, I would make the questions a bit more verbose in the tests

Excellent courseware and delivery! I highly recommend digital security professionals to take this course.
Gives a very good comprehensive view of cryptography. One regret: should have included digital signatures
von Fernando G•
Excellent course, i recommend it to any one willing to start understanding and working with cryptography.

Really helps to understand the underlying concepts of SSl and hence helps understand the working of SSL.

A broad, fundamental dive into private and public key encryption systems. Challenging and informative!
Great course. Arguments are explained quickly but clear. Very good the quality of lectures and slides.

I did a lot of crypto back at the university. This is a great opportunity for a thorough refreshment.
von Julien C•
Excellent material to learn what "security" means, and what algorithms have been built to improve it.
