Icebreakers are programs used by Runners to penetrate the Ice protecting corporate servers. The first credited icebreaker was a unique script for bypassing the security calls on a Gibson 3 Data Sentry.
Types of IcebreakerEdit
In addition to these 3 types of icebreakers, there are also a few AI -based programs which function as icebreakers. Unlike the others, A.I. icebreakers can deal with all forms of ice regardless of type. Known AI icebreakers include Alpha, Atman, Crypsis, Darwin, Knight, Omega and Wyrm.
