The first possible solution quickly came to my mind, was to do what i2p was
doing for years: assigning a placeholder IP address based on the 32-bit hash of
the circuit ID. It is not an ideal countermeasure, but it does work for simple
rate-limiting purpose and compatible with existing IP-based applications and
I've just checked the source code.
and it turned out that this feature from i2p was actually based on this patch
purposed in tor-dev mailing list!
[tor-dev] Patch: Hidden service: use inbound bind-address based on circuit ID
I don't know if it's still worth to try with this approach, or developing a
separate API should be the right way to go. Any other insights, anyone?
