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.

Excellent course, even the persons lacking the very basics of cryptography can understand.
By Krishna R•
A theoretically rigorous course that really needs time and lots of dedication to succeed.
Thanks for Coursera to give me a valuable opportunity to improve my skills coursera rocks

I feel I learnt a lot about cryptography
through this course and understood it's bounces.
A very good course for beginners.
More practical session is needed for next level course
