Welcome to Introduction to Applied Cryptography. Cryptography is an essential component of cybersecurity. The need to protect sensitive information and ensure the integrity of industrial control processes has placed a premium on cybersecurity skills in today’s information technology market. Demand for cybersecurity jobs is expected to rise 6 million globally by 2019, with a projected shortfall of 1.5 million, according to Symantec, the world’s largest security software vendor. According to Forbes, the cybersecurity market is expected to grow from $75 billion in 2015 to $170 billion by 2020. In this specialization, you will learn basic security issues in computer communications, classical cryptographic algorithms, symmetric-key cryptography, public-key cryptography, authentication, and digital signatures. These topics should prove especially useful to you if you are new to cybersecurity Course 1, Classical Cryptosystems, introduces you to basic concepts and terminology related to cryptography and cryptanalysis. It is recommended that you have a basic knowledge of computer science and basic math skills such as algebra and probability.

TOP REVIEWS FROM CLASSICAL CRYPTOSYSTEMS AND CORE CONCEPTS
Introductional but very nice. Grading can maybe be bettered. Seems somehow to investigate if you have "followed" than if you have "understood" but not easy to do much better for an online course.
Excellent lectures. Mostly very easy to follow, but some mathematical points were ran through a bit too quickly and thinly.
This course was very interesting and enlightening. The concepts have been explained very well.
Very difficult course if you have no previous experience with cryptoanalysis and recent stats, but good because it makes you think!
