There's another possibility that's probably easier to implement and
test, but isn't so broadly useful as a hard-to-generate GnuPG key. In
creating a hidden service, the Tor client generates an RSA private_key
and uses the first 80 bytes of the key's SHA1 hash as the hostname.
Vanity hostnames being popular, there are published methods.[0]
