Excellent course. The proofs that are laid out in a way that made it easy for me to follow along, and it gave me a good overview of the areas of cryptography that are most relevant to me.

Really helpful bur you need to match all the required knowledge before jumping in otherwise you won't understand a thing

Thanks to Coursera for that I have studied online this course! Also, thanks to
University of Maryland and to my Professor

This course was enjoyable and challenging. Early lessons cover historical ciphers, along with some fun programming challenges to attack them.
Later lessons dive into modern cryptography. This is more challenging and you will need to study some number theory if you have not done so previously. I ended up buying Prof Katz' book and also Concrete Mathematics to fully get my head around the subject matter. The treatment is not superficial.
This is where I dropped one star from the review - I thought that the course could have done a better job of covering the theory in this space, or at least pointing to sources to study it, or mentioning it as a pre-requisite.
I also thought that the course could have done a better job of describing how all the pieces come together - the discussion is there, but it is light and somewhat assumed you will get it. The only thorough discussion is specifically for SSL / TLS late in the lecture series.
Overall, a good and challenging course. This is not an easy MOOC - so only take it if you are interested in a challenge and don't mind extra study time.

Course provides practical understanding for cryptographic primitives without delving too deeply into the maths. I found the accompanying book (optional) to be of great value in enhancing the depth of material. Would have been helpful to spend a bit more time on SSL/TLS to solidify the knowledge.

Pretty nice course, on par with the more popular Coursera course Cryptography I by Dan Boneh - more of an introductory course for applied cryptography while Cryptography I is somewhat more theoretical. Useful introduction to DH and RSA. Purely optional programming assignments - .

There are too much materials for each week for a Hong Kong secondary school (middle school) student. The speed can be adjusted to a slower one, so as to allow more people to catch up the course.

Interesting course, the math was certainly complex. I would have liked to know a little more on how the equation itself worked.
Also more hands on work is also nice and paints a more clear picture.

Awesome course those who wants to learn more thing about cryptography should go for it.
I really appreciate work done by Prof. Jonathan Katz.
Thanks Jonathan Katz for sharing your valuable knowledge.

I needed an introduction course for cryptography.
finding coursera was amazing, registering and participating in this course was just what I was looking for.
Explanations and examples are clear and understood.
Keeping the pace for 7 weeks was a straggle worth paying !!
Thanks for the effort invested to bring it public, will surly participate in more classes.
