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.
I just want to say that this course is very good for people who know a lot of math and i mean it will be easy for them to grasp the course , so i strongly recommend to please explain concepts a little bit more .

An amazing course that provided me with important tools in cryptography. I hope I see more courses like this in the future and a special thank you to Professor Dan Boneh for teaching this course. Thank you.

A bit too hard actually, should be more focused on practical cryptography that teaches how to use cryptography in computer programming more efficiently, rather than theoretical cryptography.
By Dan D•
Really interesting and comprehensive course. Sometimes really important concepts were glossed over quickly which made it occasionally tricky to follow but then it is tricky subject matter!
By Ricardo d C C•
It is really interesting and clarifying. It does require much attention to details and taking a lot of notes, however. It focuses on the theory, with practical examples. I sure liked it.

The lectures are very good. Easy to understand and keep on track. But the lecturer could enunciate better. But that is also not a huge issue since pausing and replaying is an option.

Excellent material. As usual with computer science courses, some of the material could be presented a bit more clearly. But I am really happy to finally understand this material now.
By Marcos E K•
Great intro to a complex topic.
It could be improved by having the programming assignments be:
+ More related to actual cryptographic algorithms/libraries (only some are)
By Kris J•
Interesting and learned a lot, but probably need a greater foundation in hex and mod math than I had. I suspect there are prerequisites re in the formal program.
By Tristan B•
Good overall course, it could use an update on some minor points. Theory is a strong part of the course. I hope the Crypto II course will be up one day.

Best cryptography course ever!! Detailed and clear explanation, fun, nice quizzes. But it would be better if the pace was a little bit slower.
By Mohammed R U•
Excellent Course to understand the Crypto Construction, Possible Attacks, Semantic Security and pplications of crypto in real world scenarios
By Bruno V•
Great course. Not easy to sustain the rhythm, I prefer "at your own pace" kind of course, where you have time to dig into the subject.

The contents are presented in a super good way, this is the best way for anyone to learn basic and essential concepts on cryptography.
By Thierry L•
Very good course with a level accessible without the need to be a mathematical guru. Maybe some videos are a little beat too long.
By Nicholas J•
Above all, the clarity, quality and engaging nature of Professors Boneh's videos made this a great learning experience. Thanks.
By Quentin D•
Very interesting but sometimes too detailed. Courses often needs good knowledge in mathematics althought there are some reviews.

A bit hard to follow some of the math stuff if you don't have a background it in, but pretty informative course overall
By Unai E•
Course is very interesting but, in my opinion, it is a bit theoretical. I would like the course were more practical.
By Simone B•
Fantastic course that gives the basic notions of cryptography. Both practical a theoretical tests are very useful.

Great course, but a bit disappointed by the fact that I'll have to do it all over again to get a certificate.
The Course has been more about knowing about and implementing them and has been more helpfull in doing so.

Exceptional Course .. Especially he lectures were clearly explained. But the exercises were a bit tough.
By Roland d B•
Very thorough, lot's of math. A bit too academic for my taste, it's not really useful in practice.
By Nathan M•
Pretty good, though needs more basic understanding. Quite a bit of prereq's for this course!
