All the concepts were explained excellently. Finds application in the Information Security. Thanks to
It found it very well structured course. The way in which Instructor maintains the flow and delivery of ideas is awesome.
The assignments were Really hard, but really made the course worthwhile. I have a much better framework for thinking about cryptography in general, now.
Thanks a lot to our professor but I think we need to know more about the prerequisites of this course and more examples wit numbers and answers
关于 网络安全 专项课程
The Cybersecurity Specialization covers the fundamental concepts underlying the construction of secure systems, from the hardware to the software to the human-computer interface, with the use of cryptography to secure interactions. These concepts are illustrated with examples drawn from modern practice, and augmented with hands-on exercises involving relevant tools and techniques. Successful participants will develop a way of thinking that is security-oriented, better understanding how to think about adversaries and how to build systems that defend against them.
