Developers Crack Siri Security Protocol to Make It Work With Any Device

Developers have cracked Siri's security protocols which will make it possible to use the assistant on any device including the iPad or even Android smartphones, according to Applidium.

Here's some of what they discovered:

The iPhone 4S really sends raw audio data. It's compressed using the Speex audio codec, which makes sense as it's a codec specifically tailored for VoIP. The iPhone 4S sends identifiers everywhere. So if you want to use Siri on another device, you still need the identifier of at least one iPhone 4S. Of course we're not publishing ours, but it's very easy to retrieve one using the tools we've written. Of course Apple could blacklist an identifier, but as long as you're keeping it for personal use, that should be alright!

The protocol is actually very, very chatty. Your iPhone sends a tons of things to Apple's servers. And those servers reply an incredible amount of informations. For example, when you're using text-to-speech, Apple's server even reply a confidence score and the timestamp of each word.

Applidium has released the tools they wrote to help them understand the protocol. If you know what you're doing the tools should be enough to help you write a Siri-enabled application.

Are you serial stupid? If you can't see the writing styles between the two of us, then you are as stupid as you appear. I have not reason to hide behind anyone or anything. You are not at my level. Never have been, nor never will be.

Awww... Poor you the victim.... Not my fault if you are stupid. Speaking English has nothing to do with it. There are plenty here on this site that do not speak English well but they try to be reasonable and are neither racists nor bigots. You are both, and stupid on top of it. Then you claim victimhood as your reason for your actions. Grow up, grow a pair, and for the love of God, get a life. By the way, you started this when you assumed I was Big White Azz. Again, your stupidity shines through...
