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.

Stanford's MOOCs are the best! They are hard but always worth the effort. And can't wait for Cryptography II.

The schedule was very tough. There were a lot of tests in the end of each module. But it was worth it.
