For those interested... You can still get in on Coursera's Intro to Cryptography course from Stanford. It's been great so far, on week 3 of 6, but you can catch up!


Udacity also has a great course on Crypto: http://www.udacity.com/overview/Course/cs387/CourseRev/apr20...

"This is a set of lecture notes on cryptography compiled for 6.87s, a one week long course on cryptography taught at MIT by Shafi Goldwasser and Mihir Bellare in the summers of 1996–2002, 2004, 2005 and 2008.

Cryptography is of course a vast subject. The thread followed by these notes is to develop and explain the notion of provable security and its usage for the design of secure protocols. Much of the material in Chapters 2, 3 and 7 is a result of scribe notes, originally taken by MIT graduate students who attended Professor Goldwasser’s Cryptography and Cryptanalysis course over the years, and later edited by Frank D’Ippolito who was a teaching assistant for the course in 1991."
