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.
Cutting edge cryptography topics. Good explanations and slides, but pause button is highly recommended. Can be a bit too mathematical for the general public, and not very formal for mathematicians.

Some of the questions in the quizzes were vague and hard to comprehend. Also the professor's hand writing on the notes doesn't help since it's messy and the marker quality is not that good either.
Apart from the above, a good intro course to crypto, thanks.

A very good presentation of the theory of cryptography algorithms, but I'm disappointed that Crypto II is not available for now: some important points such as SSL/TLS crypto protocols or eliptic curves are not described at all in Crypto I.
The course is really what I wanted: It covers theoretical and practical aspect of cryptography. The exercises are also very well designed, although, I found some of them quite difficult.
Overall, I would recommend this course to a friend.

It was totally worthy for me for the amount of time I have invested in this course. Got to learn many aspects of Cryptography and also want to thank educator for giving his precious time to make me learn new concepts about Cryptography.

The course is very interesting and the topics are very well explained by the proffessor. I didn have a wide background about cryptography but still could learn a lot. Congrats!!. I would preffer more examples and not so much theory.

The content of the course is excellent. Sometime the excercises are a bit confusing because the losse of information in the content. Also is a little quick but I found it excellent to be an introduction to Cryptography.

Though the material is quite challenging, professor Boneh explains it quite clearly and at an easy pace in his lectures. I found it very interesting to learn more about encryption and how the current standards work.
I just want to say that this course is very good for people who know a lot of math and i mean it will be easy for them to grasp the course , so i strongly recommend to please explain concepts a little bit more .

An amazing course that provided me with important tools in cryptography. I hope I see more courses like this in the future and a special thank you to Professor Dan Boneh for teaching this course. Thank you.

A bit too hard actually, should be more focused on practical cryptography that teaches how to use cryptography in computer programming more efficiently, rather than theoretical cryptography.
por Dan D•
Really interesting and comprehensive course. Sometimes really important concepts were glossed over quickly which made it occasionally tricky to follow but then it is tricky subject matter!
por Ricardo d C C•
It is really interesting and clarifying. It does require much attention to details and taking a lot of notes, however. It focuses on the theory, with practical examples. I sure liked it.
por Gabriel D O•
The lectures are very good. Easy to understand and keep on track. But the lecturer could enunciate better. But that is also not a huge issue since pausing and replaying is an option.
por Howard ( R•
Excellent material. As usual with computer science courses, some of the material could be presented a bit more clearly. But I am really happy to finally understand this material now.
por Marcos E K•
Great intro to a complex topic.
It could be improved by having the programming assignments be:
+ More related to actual cryptographic algorithms/libraries (only some are)
por Kris J•
Interesting and learned a lot, but probably need a greater foundation in hex and mod math than I had. I suspect there are prerequisites re in the formal program.
por Tristan B•
Good overall course, it could use an update on some minor points. Theory is a strong part of the course. I hope the Crypto II course will be up one day.
por Ameer T•
Best cryptography course ever!! Detailed and clear explanation, fun, nice quizzes. But it would be better if the pace was a little bit slower.
por Mohammed R U•
Excellent Course to understand the Crypto Construction, Possible Attacks, Semantic Security and pplications of crypto in real world scenarios
por Bruno V•
Great course. Not easy to sustain the rhythm, I prefer "at your own pace" kind of course, where you have time to dig into the subject.
por Shrihari S•
The contents are presented in a super good way, this is the best way for anyone to learn basic and essential concepts on cryptography.
por Thierry L•
Very good course with a level accessible without the need to be a mathematical guru. Maybe some videos are a little beat too long.
por Nicholas J•
Above all, the clarity, quality and engaging nature of Professors Boneh's videos made this a great learning experience. Thanks.
por Quentin D•
Very interesting but sometimes too detailed. Courses often needs good knowledge in mathematics althought there are some reviews.

A bit hard to follow some of the math stuff if you don't have a background it in, but pretty informative course overall
