the digest is public, and you can obtain it via cached-* files in your
Tor data directory, a public Tor status site, or other methods.

the key(s) from which the digest is derived should never be disclosed.

note that many routers may share the same nickname, like "Unnamed", so
you should use a combination of nickname+ip address to identify the
digest you want.
