403 Aurelius A Server is a computer program or a machine that waits for requests from other machines or software (clients) and responds to them. A server typically processes data. 1

HBC has many servers in their headquarters which contain various kinds of data. As a company that provides internet services, their main server room is full of databases and other web content, but there are many other servers in the building that contain additional databases, mail, blueprints, and other internal company files.

The HBC server system is unique in that, while they are all networked to each other and connected to the internet, they are segregated through a complex firewall and user system, preventing the servers from accessing each other unless the user has the same credentials on both servers.

The Mysterious Tipster can hack into the system and server functions to access these files and the building's security functions, but he requires physical access in order to get into any given server within a reasonable timeframe. To this end, the protagonist? has been given a hacking device? which will reboot the server with the security protocols disabled specifically for the tipster.
