[tor-talk] What is the different between cached-microdescs, cached-microdesc-consensus and cached-microdescs.new?
I just have a look at ~/Tor Browser\Browser\TorBrowser\Data\Tor and see the
above mentioned 3 files. I don't really know how they are different in both
"content" and "role".
Which file is used to build circuit by Client?
Which File is used to checked "the validity of recent-possessing network
TO the best of my knowledge, client check whether there are any
downloadable descriptors (currently every 10 seconds according to
dir-spec.txt). So could anyone please explain or give me a hint of how the
client really "CHECK" that?
in the cached-microdesc-consensus file contains a descriptor
r PDrelay1 AAFJ5u9xAqrKlpDW6N0pMhJLlKs 2015-03-09 10:53:09 18.104.22.168
s Fast Running Stable Valid
v Tor 0.2.5.10
in the cached-microdescs file contains this:
-----BEGIN RSA PUBLIC KEY-----
-----END RSA PUBLIC KEY-----
id rsa1024 AAFJ5u9xAqrKlpDW6N0pMhJLlKs
@last-listed 2015-03-09 03:46:20
So which value Client will parse and send to Directory Mirrors to Check if
a descriptor is still valid or invalid in this case, is that the
"AAFJ5u9xAqrKlpDW6N0pMhJLlKs", cos I can only find this is the only common
value between two files?
Will Client have to send all of "that-value" of all recent possessing
descriptors to Mirrors to test? If yes, how the Mirrors will handle those
Thank you for reading my question, and please correct me if I said
