About

Improve Your Career in Computer Security with the Applied Cryptography offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado System. Master the cryptographic tools and their design principles to apply them for computer security.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

This Applied Cryptography offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado System is intended for the learners interested in or already pursuing a career in computer security or other cybersecurity-related fields. 

Through four courses, the learners will cover the security of information systems, information entropy, classical cryptographic algorithms, symmetric cryptography, asymmetric/public-key cryptography, hash functions, message authentication codes, digital signatures, key management and distribution, and other fundamental cryptographic primitives and protocols.

Applied Learning Project

Learners will build the logic and the pseudo-code for the widely used cryptographic primitives and algorithms (as opposed to merely knowing how to use them as black boxes), which will enable them to implement the cryptographic primitives in any platforms/language they choose.

Take Courses

A Coursera Specialization is a series of courses that helps you master a skill. To begin, enroll in the Specialization directly, or review its courses and choose the one you'd like to start with. When you subscribe to a course that is part of a Specialization, you’re automatically subscribed to the full Specialization. It’s okay to complete just one course — you can pause your learning or end your subscription at any time. Visit your learner dashboard to track your course enrollments and your progress.

Hands-on Project

Every Specialization includes a hands-on project. You'll need to successfully finish the project(s) to complete the Specialization and earn your certificate. If the Specialization includes a separate course for the hands-on project, you'll need to finish each of the other courses before you can start it.

Earn a Certificate

When you finish every course and complete the hands-on project, you'll earn a Certificate that you can share with prospective employers and your professional network.
