Learn practical cryptography from ground up


Data is the new oil of the 21st century, and guarding this oil has become a headache for many individuals & organizations. Today, people are always looking for various ways to protect their data. One such way is encryption that is a form of cryptography through which you can change information or decode it so that only a particular person can read it.

Everyone is using it- the government is using it to secure classified information, businesses are using it to protect corporate secrets, individuals are using it to guard personal data against any digital theft or piracy.

As of now, it has become one of the most effective forms of data security & still it’s underutilized. As per numerous studies, there has been a steady increase in the deployment of encryption solutions by businesses and organizations over the last few years. This has led to an increase in the fascination of cryptography & fascination. Considering this, we have curated this exclusive course that will teach you every essential concept revolving around Cryptography & Encryption so that you can help others protect businesses.

What Makes This Course So Special?

This course is uniquely curated with all the important concepts required to master Encryption from scratch. It will give you a unique perspective of cryptography, its importance along with some key elements of encryption.

This course unfolds with all the fundamentals by introducing you to the cryptography, information theory & building blocks of encryption. Once the basic is covered, the instructor will give you insights into symmetric encryption algorithms for data transfer & data storage, & then help you understand public-key cryptography.

You will also learn other essential concepts such as hash functions, hash algorithms, & so on. Lastly, to make you confident in encryption, we have also included some more advanced concepts such as Secure Multi-Party Computation, Zero-Knowledge Proofs, Ring Signatures, Post-Quantum Cryptography & others.

This Course Includes-

1. Fundamentals of cryptography

2. Symmetric key cryptography- algorithms, security for bulk data transfer & data storage

3. Public key cryptography- introduction, ‘hard’ problems, asymmetric algorithms, public key infrastructure, cryptography for key sharing

4. Hash functions- Introduction, security assumptions, algorithms, hash functions for password security & data integrity

5. Advanced concepts- secure multi-party computation, zero-knowledge proofs, ring signatures, post-quantum cryptography, homomorphic encryption

I rather prefer more practical examples instead of a more "high-level" approach. Maybe some slides with more technical explanation would have been helpful.

Loved the course so far. Its clear, concise and has all the required information on cryptography. Thanks a lot for this.

I like the slide based, lectures with explanation. I would have liked to see a few more graphics on the use of the different encryption algorithms. A few graphical slides on use cases, and examples of hashing too. The explanations were very good, but needs something to perk the interest when watching several videos in a row.

I sought to strengthen my knowledge in cryptography as a web applications developer and I found it in this course. The instructor is very knowledgeable in the subject, speaks clearly and explains very well. The quality of the course material is very good.

Very good course, but the english captions are frequently wrong, and it could show more graphical schemas and demonstrations with the text/speaked explanations.

Armando4 February 2021

This is extremely great intro to cryptography. This is gives you an amazing 10,000 ft view of what it is, what is involved, and how it is applied. Now I feel more prepared to go into lower level material, as well as learning how to apply this in code.

Instructor is well educated. Its performance is good organized. Easy to follow and understand. Although some details about algorithms are missing by me. This is a general introduction about them. This course is a good starting point.

The course is not very technical. The information can easily be garnered from a simple Youtube video. I expected mathematical examples and elaboration on the fundamentals with examples.

So far, I am impressed by the level of understanding of the subject matter of the course displayed by the faculty.
