Hidden Service Setup Guide for Newbies (Version .2)

Hash: SHA1

Hey all,

So I worked a lot more on this guide and I have worked out (hopefully)
all the bugs and kinks. This should allow you to safely run a hidden
service with PHP, shell access, cgi, etc. without worrying about your
anonymity being broken. I gave shell accounts out to a few people and
they weren't able to do anything. My hidden service is now down (I need
it for other work) but it would be cool if somebody that has a spare
machine can set something up using this guide and open it up to folks.

Grab the guide at http://www.olyhackbloc.org/hidsec.pdf

I've also set up a script to do most of the basic configuration for the
host machine (iptables setup, installing tor/privoxy, etc.). This script
is VERY untested so please use with extra caution and send me any
feedback you have. This doesn't do anything of the things I suggest in
the guide to speed up your machine, that's your responsibility. It also
doesn't enable automatic updates, which I highly suggest you do.

Please try this guide out and let me know how it works for you. This is
still a beta thing so please be careful and don't do anything you need
strong anonymity for.
