Hi ESAPI lists.

This is a bit OT for this list. Flames to /dev/null please.

If you have ever wanted to learn more about cryptography, now is your chance.
Cryptographer and Stanford university associate professor Dan Boneh is
teaching the cryptography course, which starts on Monday, 3/12. No course
credit, but this is the real deal, homework and all.

If you are interested, you can enroll at:
	https://www.coursera.org/crypto/auth/welcome

Sign up. I did. (Never turn down the opportunity to learn from a
master.) Hey, it should be fun. (What have you got to lose
except for learning that almost everything you thought you
knew about cryptography was wrong. ;-)

Oh, by the way, Stanford University is starting 4 other free online
courses this month. Two other classes will launch on March 12 -- Design &
Analysis of Algorithms and Natural Language Processing. Two more, Game Theory
and Probabilistic Graphical Models, are scheduled to launch on March 19. All
courses are undergraduate level.

You can register for each of the courses on the links provided on this page:

Enjoy,
-kevin
