The factoring natural numbers into factors is a complex computational task. The complexity of solving this problem lies at the heart of RSA security, one of the most famous cryptographic methods. The classical trial division algorithm divides a given number N into all divisors, starting from 2 and to integer part of √N. Therefore, this algorithm can be called the direct trial division algorithm. We present the inverse trial division algorithm, which divides a given number N into all divisors,
starting from the integer part of √N to 2.
