• Hacker Creates Siri Proxy Server Hack to Add Limitless Functionality to Siri

    Applidium’s cracking of the Siri security protocol early this week was a huge development in the quest to successfully get Siri communicating with Apple servers on non-iPhone 4S devices. While it still isn’t possible, an interesting development by a hacker with the Twitter handle “plamoni” might bring a bevy of new features to Siri.

    Plamoni created a proxy server for Siri. The whole point of the proxy server allows developers to create custom Siri handlers for different actions. In plamoni’s particular example he created a plugin with custom handles that allowed him to control his thermostat from his iPhone.

    The possibilities extend far beyond checking and changing the settings on a thermostat. Even better, the hack doesn’t require a jailbroken iPhone 4S to work. But, it does requires a decent amount of knowledge of certificates and openssl as users will need to create a root CA, load the root CA’s public certificate to their phone and set up a DNS server on their home network. Full instructions on how to set up a Siri Proxy on your home network can be found here.

    This development has my mind racing like a six-year old’s in Candy Land. The jailbreak community will undoubtedly come up with a number of elegant, functional, and useful Siri hacks utilizing the what Applidium started and plamoni continued.

    Again I cannot reiterate how awesome this development is. Siri could be far more customizable and easily manipulated than previously imagined.
