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.

Good pace , reading along the transcribed speeches of the professor.The professor broke down the lesson into easily understandable bits.
par Waleed A•
This is really awesome for basic learners of cryptography. This course motivated me to choose Cybersecurity field for my future studies.
par Filip K•
Thank you for creating this course and enabling anyone with a smartphone and an internet connection to learn this powerful technology.
par 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.
par 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?).
par Humberto M•
Excellent course. Dan explains crypto from the ground up making it easy to understand more advanced constructions as the weeks advance.
par Sergei M•
Very informative and convinient course, everything is pretty easy to understand thanks to Stanford University, Coursera and Dan Boneh!
par 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!
par Jocelyn H•
This was a very helpful introductory course I would recommend to anyone with no experience. Lectures were clear and easily understood.
par James T•
Very good course for anyone with some programming background. An pre-requisite understanding of modular arithmetic would be helpful.
par 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
par 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.
par 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.
par Manazir A•
Fantastic course. I am getting preliminary idea of cryptography from this course. Hope to take the "Cryptography II" course as well.
par 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!
par carlos g•
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
par Purusharth A•
Best course for learning cryptography. Assignments questions are challenging and test every knowledge you learn during the course.
par Daniel B•
Amazing course full of useful content! Professor Dan Boneh presents complex cryptographic topics in a very understandable manner.
par Arnon S•
The course is very interesting. Dan Boneh really explains the material very well and in an interseting way. Waiting for Crypto II
par Daniel M•
Sencillo, pero suficiente para que el que está un poco interesado en el mundo de la criptografía quede más que decidido a seguir.
par Heet S•
Very basic to advanced level of cryptography course and it also covers the basic mathematics needed for learning those concepts.
par Gina J•
This guy is SO MONEY!! He makes it look like you could do cryptography in your sleep. Which I am almost convinced he must do ;~D
par Vladislav K•
An interesting course. I liked the optional programming exercises most. I hope Cryptography II is as interesting as this course.
par Camilo H V G•
Dan Boneh is an excellent techer, he has the ability to simplify complex topic. So greatful to be able to take clasess with him.
