Historical Note RSA $130$

RSA $130$ is one of a number of large ($100$ digits and over) semiprimes offered up as a factorisation challenge by Ronald Linn Rivest, Adi Shamir and Leonard Max Adleman as a demonstration of the effectiveness of their encryption algorithm now known as RSA.

On $12$th April $1996$, RSA $130$ was successfully factorised into its $2$ prime factors by a Dutch team.
