Tor will encrypt your data while it's being passed from one relay to the
other, all the way to the Exit node. If you send HTTP, it will come out
By TLS? So if running a hidden service, is it redundant to serve it
using HTTPS/port 443??
Hidden Services are a special case, everything inside a hidden service
is end to end encrypted. So as long as the hidden service and the Web
Service are on the same machine I guess you can get away with not
installing SSL on the web service.
I used to setup my hidden services with SSL on the web port and when I
realized this it was very pleasant :)
