In this course, we will study security and trust from the hardware perspective. Upon completing the course, students will understand the vulnerabilities in current digital system design flow and the physical attacks to these systems. They will learn that security starts from hardware design and be familiar with the tools and skills to build secure and trusted hardware.

TOP REVIEWS FROM HARDWARE SECURITY
Very good course but math portion should have more clear explanation. Some easy part is over explained where some hard part is less explained. Overall it's a good course.
Well presented course that could use a bit of tweaking in terms of the quizzes, but altogether a well composed learning experience.
Great course, very helpful. The content is well organised and you need to have all the require knowledge, otherwise you won't get it.
It was a very nice course. Lots of exposure was given to mathematical ways of analyzing threat.
About the Cybersecurity Specialization
The Cybersecurity Specialization covers the fundamental concepts underlying the construction of secure systems, from the hardware to the software to the human-computer interface, with the use of cryptography to secure interactions. These concepts are illustrated with examples drawn from modern practice, and augmented with hands-on exercises involving relevant tools and techniques. Successful participants will develop a way of thinking that is security-oriented, better understanding how to think about adversaries and how to build systems that defend against them.
