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.

excellent course，the professor explains the concept in this course surprisedly clear. Finish this course can build a fundamental structure to pursue research in crypto field
By Michallis P•
Excellent course to master the basics of cryptography, and for smart card developers to understand what's written in the specifications. Crytpography II is my next goal :-)
By Albert G•
The course materials are well organized and concentrated. I fully enjoyed the course and learned a lot from it. Courses like this approach maximum efficiency for learning.
By Srinivas I•
Very informative beginner course. Perfect for someone who needs to understand the basics. Prof Boneh's instructions were excellent and the quizzes were tough but valuable.
By Mariusz D•
Really good course, instructor provides real life examples a tries to avoid the mathematic abstractions to minimum - relying rather on intuition and pictorial examples.
By Joseph M•
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.
By Thein T T L•
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.
By Anthony H•
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.
By 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.
By 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! :)
By 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
By João J•
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
By 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.
By 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.
By Divyanshu S•
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.
By Ján S•
This course really teaches the theory I was missing while using all the latest crypto tech practically and understanding it conceptually. Thank you Dan!
By 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.
By Ramaswamy I•
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.
By 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.
By Prafull K J•
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.
By 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.
By Chitrang S•
Excellent Course. Requires lot of patience but the rewards are extremely great.
Learned a lot about internals mathematics involved in Cryptography.
By 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.
