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.

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.

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.
By Pierre D•
This course is brillant, with awesome (optional) coding problems to learn who to go from theory to practice! Thanks for these wonderful materials.
By Christian F•
I think this course was an ecelent course. Too short and too many information. High-level teach by amazing Harvard professor. Thanks Dan Boneh.
By Mohamud A J•
Excellent course material with even more excellent Professor. thank you prof. for your generosity. thank you coursera for making this available.
By Algorithm Y•
Thank you very much for anyone that make this course very interactive and fun. Special thank's for Prof. Dan Boneh as Instructor in this course.

No matter whether you know what Cryptography is, and if you don't know whether you like it, you'll find the answer after taking this course.
By Simon C•
My background is in mathematics, I found this course had very good explanations as well as a range of optional further reading / exercises.
By Vijai K S•
This time it will be finished. I have such a craze on cryptography and network security. i want to finish the course perfectly this time :)
By Petar P•
Amazing content, great structure, easy examples even for first-timers, and a handful of extra-reading resources. Recommended for everyone.
By Sangar S•
This course is filled with a great amount of information covered at a fast pace. A must do course if you need to get into Cyber Security.
By Olusola A•
Good pace , reading along the transcribed speeches of the professor.The professor broke down the lesson into easily understandable bits.
By Waleed A•
This is really awesome for basic learners of cryptography. This course motivated me to choose Cybersecurity field for my future studies.
By Filip K•
Thank you for creating this course and enabling anyone with a smartphone and an internet connection to learn this powerful technology.
By Vigneswaran R•
Very interesting. A little fast paced. As suggested, we should pause, think, and then continue, in order to get most out of the course.
By Bastien T•
Many thanks to Dan Boneh and everyone involved in preparing this amazing course!
I can't wait for Cryptography 2 (hopefully this fall?).
By Humberto M•
Excellent course. Dan explains crypto from the ground up making it easy to understand more advanced constructions as the weeks advance.
By Мазин С В•
Very informative and convinient course, everything is pretty easy to understand thanks to Stanford University, Coursera and Dan Boneh!
By Wessel v W•
Awesome, good explanations, pretty hard on the math area (for me) but once you understand the way Dan explains it it's easy to follow.
By Augusto H d L Q•
O Curso é ótimo, está me ajudando bastante, faço o download dos videos e do material e estudo em casa e me preparo para as avaliações!
By Jocelyn H•
This was a very helpful introductory course I would recommend to anyone with no experience. Lectures were clear and easily understood.
By James T•
Very good course for anyone with some programming background. An pre-requisite understanding of modular arithmetic would be helpful.
