Polynomial or there abouts!

This is "Engineering Solvable"


whereas 2^n is considered "unsolvable"

that's why it becomes impossible after 1000 bits long numbers.

The NSA has a BUILDING SIZED PARALLEL COMPUTER with something like
1,000,000 PC's worth of processing power, so they can factor 10X
bigger than a Uni computer can!
