[tor-talk] Hidden Services Questions (mostly) Please?
Bare with me as I ramble my way toward hidden services.
First a plain server connect:
Assuming a simple web client using Tor to contact a normal web page, NOT
HTTPS for simplicity.
Client <=> Node A <=> Node B <=> Node C <-> HTTP Server
Node "C" (exit) sees unencrypted traffic to the server and can monitor
Assuming I set up more than 3 nodes in a circuit, can any of the nodes
determine how many nodes I'm using?
Now Hidden service:
Client <=> A <=> B <=> C <=> Rendezvous <=> D <=> E <=> F <~> Hidden Server
I assume that unlike the non-HS, "C" is not equivalent to an exit node and
C <=> Rendezvous is encrypted?
Does "C" know it is the last node before connecting to a Rendezvous?
Is the F <~> Hidden Server connection encrypted or not?
Does "F" know it is the last node and connecting to a Hidden Service?
Thanks for helping to educate me! 8-)
