Stanford Free Crypto Class - Review

The free online cryptography course I attended this April was taught by Stanford professor Dan Boneh. Its infrastructure and organization are provided by coursera company.

The course was everything I expect from an university course. It explains both the theory and its practical consequences. It shows how ciphers work, how to use them, what are their limitations and why they have been designed the way they have been designed.
