Thread: Hacker Creates Siri Proxy Server Hack to Add Limitless Functionality to Siri

    Default 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.
