Oops, I forgot about Neal!  :embarrassed:

He's a top-notch mathematician, has a couple of books on crypto (or 
crypto-related topics) and even wrote a controversial article with Menezes
recently that was discussed on this mailing list.

But I don't think he teaches a crypto class at UW?!

 It is taught by good people, but I find it a bit strange they are all
 Microsoft employees.  This is perhaps because U. Wash doesn't have any
 cryptographers.
 
 I hardly think that you can discount the skills of Josh Beneloh and 
 Brian LaMacchia.
 
Who is discounting?  I said they are good people but that they work
for Microsoft and not for the University of Washington.


 That changes in the fall: they hired an excellent young cryptographer
 named Yoshi Kohno.
 
 Damn, I was trying to hire Yoshi...
 
So were we (here at the University of Colorado).  So was everyone! :)

Yes, my apologies, I misparsed your statement.

I do not understand why this course got so much attention. What is
special about it (besides available video lectures)?
I have a whole collection of links to similar courses. Please take a look at
http://www-cse.ucsd.edu/users/maxal/e-books.html

Just as an example, I can mention UCSD based course Introduction to
Modern Cryptography by Mihir Bellare and Phillip Rogaway available at
http://www-cse.ucsd.edu/users/mihir/cse207/classnotes.html

Talking about video lectures, I was impressed by Workshop in
Algorithmic Number Theory and Workshop in Number-Theoretic
Cryptography at Clay Mathematics Institute:
http://www.msri.org/publications/video/index01.html

Max

P.S. If you know other good courses/lectures on the topic missing in
the collection, please share.
