I asked this question and Mike from iFixit told me they are working on a blog post right now about the Lightning cable. It must not be done yet.

Saw this link on MacRumors yesterday- Pins

Here's someone who ripped one apart already. I think they jumped to conclusions on this authentication bit because they completely missed the fact that it must reassign the pins.- Apple 'added authentication chip' to iPhone 5 cable to stop third-parties making cheaper versions
