About the Course

Welcome to Course 2 of Introduction to Applied Cryptography. In this course, you will be introduced to basic mathematical principles and functions that form the foundation for cryptographic and cryptanalysis methods. These principles and functions will be helpful in understanding symmetric and asymmetric cryptographic methods examined in Course 3 and Course 4. These topics should prove especially useful to you if you are new to cybersecurity. It is recommended that you have a basic knowledge of computer science and basic math skills such as algebra and probability....

I enrolled for this course because Number Theory is my area of interest. This course has helped me to spend my time effectively during this lockdown period. Thank you Coursera.

It was an awesome course, I found the idea of cryptography deeply. After 10 years I fullfilled one of my dream.

I strongly recommend doing the 3rd and 4th course first in this series to get a bit more solid mathematical foundation if you have none. Additionally, Google the terms and watch YouTube clips for simpler explanations instead of just listening to the chapters.

Good course - but could do with worked examples of the math problems and some problem sets to practice with. This course told me what to learn and related it to crypto but I had to go to youtube to actually learn the math

Lessons are OK, but you need to watch in x1.25-x1.5 speed, to be honest. There were quite a few errors in quizzes, that made general impression worth.

This course very good for beginners, but the drawback is that explanation by the mentors are not good enough to understand completely.
