e,N,c and around 2/3 of p are given and I need to get the whole p to decrypt c.

"?" are the missing digits. I have already tried using this website: https://latticehacks.cr.yp.to/rsa.html but I only get errors (used SageMath for that) with those numbers but the example works.

What am I doing wrong and can anyone help me find the whole factor to get the key?

  • $\begingroup$ That doesnt solve it as that method/algorithm only works if you have more than the half of the factor I think (the first half). In my case, I am missing the middle of the factor so I have a third of the beginning digits and a third of the end digits. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ You could take a look at the very nice tutorial Recovering cryptographic keys from partial information, by example by Gabrielle De Micheli and Nadia Heninger. $\endgroup$

The problem here is that you have a divisor $p$ of $n$ of the form $$ p_h \cdot 10^{208} + p_m\cdot 10^{108} + p_l\,, $$ where you know $p_h$ and $p_l$, but not $p_m < 10^{100} \lessapprox n^{0.16}$.

Clearly, the polynomial $f(x) = x\cdot 10^{108} + p_h \cdot 10^{208} + p_l$ will be $0$ modulo $p$ for the right $x = p_m$, which is known to be small. So we can apply here the GCD generalization of the Coppersmith theorem with $\beta \approx 0.5$:
