Bentley: Sly, I need your help getting a handle on the Contessa's encryption algorithm.
Sly: I'd love to pal, but I have no idea what you're talking about.

In order to get the Contessa's encryption algorithm, Sly needs to take photographs of four different security codes, located around the rehabilitation prison. First, Sly must pickpocket the key from the guards in charge of each post and activate each alarm. The guards will input the code on the screen, which allows Sly to snap a picture of it. After photographing the four codes, Bentley has enough information to crack the encryption algorithm.
