I've just used basic authentication.

In the .onion server torrc:

$ sudo nano /etc/tor/torrc
HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/foo
HiddenServiceAuthorizeClient basic [16-chracter-string]
HiddenServicePort 22

$ sudo cat /var/lib/tor/foo/hostname
[v2-hostname].onion [22-character-string] # client: [16-chracter-string]

The client ID must be 16 alphanumeric characters. Then you use the 22
character string in the client torrc.

In the client:

$ sudo nano /etc/tor/torrc
HidServAuth [v2-hostname].onion [22-character-string]
