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.

This course is brillant, with awesome (optional) coding problems to learn who to go from theory to practice! Thanks for these wonderful materials.

I think this course was an ecelent course. Too short and too many information. High-level teach by amazing Harvard professor. Thanks Dan Boneh.
por Mohamud A J•
Excellent course material with even more excellent Professor. thank you prof. for your generosity. thank you coursera for making this available.
por 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.
por 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.
por 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 :)
por Petar P•
Amazing content, great structure, easy examples even for first-timers, and a handful of extra-reading resources. Recommended for everyone.
por 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.
por Olusola A•
Good pace , reading along the transcribed speeches of the professor.The professor broke down the lesson into easily understandable bits.
por Waleed A•
This is really awesome for basic learners of cryptography. This course motivated me to choose Cybersecurity field for my future studies.
por 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.
por 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?).
por Humberto M•
Excellent course. Dan explains crypto from the ground up making it easy to understand more advanced constructions as the weeks advance.
por Мазин С В•
Very informative and convinient course, everything is pretty easy to understand thanks to Stanford University, Coursera and Dan Boneh!
por 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.

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!
por Jocelyn H•
This was a very helpful introductory course I would recommend to anyone with no experience. Lectures were clear and easily understood.
por Rodrigo R P•
An amazing course. As a person who deals directly with cryptography i see myself with a huge knowledge improvement doing this course
por Satvik C•
There is no reason why this course deserves anything less than 5 stars.
Everthying is nicely explained and there is so much to learn.
por Andrés G•
Teacher is very clear and the course contents are very good. This course is highly recommendable to any who is interested in crypto.
por Manazir A•
Fantastic course. I am getting preliminary idea of cryptography from this course. Hope to take the "Cryptography II" course as well.
por JOHAN E•
Awesome course. Really tough math wise for me, having come into this straight out of high school. Made it though, and learnt heaps!

great course i learn a lot and let me know that i need to learn a lot more, thanks Dan and all the folks that answer on the forums

Best course for learning cryptography. Assignments questions are challenging and test every knowledge you learn during the course.
