To build drilling rigs from the top downward, special hoisting devices are used, which are named after the inventor

In the 40s, Professor Ya.M. Kershenbaum, Head of the Department of Petroleum Engineering Technology proposed an original way to build drilling rigs from the top downward. In a few years, all rigging-up operations of the country switched to this assembly method, and the system of a hoisting device was called the Kershenbaum frame hoist by national and international oil workers. Moreover, many students who came to study at Moscow Oil Institute named after I.M. Gubkin were amazed to find out that kershenbaum is not just a special system, but a person, the head of the Department of Petroleum Engineering Technology.

The field of science about ciphers and disclosure methods for cracking these ciphers is called

Cryptology is the science of ciphers (cryptography) and the methods for cracking these ciphers (cryptanalysis). Cryptography studies apply such methods of information conversion that would not allow an attacker to extract it from messages illegally captured.

Cryptanalysis, on the contrary, considers the process of obtaining information from encrypted messages. The rapid development of information technology raises the issues of cryptology and special algorithms for ensuring security at various facilities of the fuel and energy complex.
