Google Summer of Tor 2010 - JTor Hidden Services

Two weeks into SoC already - that was fast. To make this exciting I made a pie chart of what I have been spending my time on (pie charts are exciting).

I have been spending a lot of my time going through the existing Tor code and seeing how it is implemented. This was a very daunting task initially, but Eclipse has made that task much easier. I have been refactoring my old code, making sure it is correct and writing Tests. I wrote some code to initialize a Hidden Service from a Tor hidden service directory, so that it would be easily compatible with that configuration. Currently I am working on making one of my tests pass - creating the same onion address for the service. Which, at the current point is not working - I believe it has something to do with the way I am hashing in the info or how I am converting it to base32 chars.

My plan for the next two weeks is to drive on with tests. The next test I am writing is to make sure that the V2 Service descriptor created is the same as Tor. Once that part is successful, I will write the tests for establishing intro points and publishing the service descriptor. Once all of those pass, publishing will be mostly done (with the exception of client authentication, which will probably not fit in these two weeks). Be sure to check my github to see my code, any suggestions are encouraged.
