An Onion Router descriptor generator
Leekspin (á la the original internet masterpiece ) is a small tool for generating mocked Onion Router (OR) descriptors, such as those used by relays and bridges within Tor in order to convey information about said relay/bridge to the Tor directory authorities, the bridge authority, and Tor clients connecting to the network.
The keys, hash digests, and signatures generated within these mock descriptors are meant to be indistinguishable from those generated by real relays and bridges within the Tor network.
The very simplest way, if you use pip , would be to do:
$ pip install leekspin
Otherwise, the standard setuptools commands work just fine:
$ git clone https://github.com/isislovecruft/leekspin.git $ cd leekspin $ python setup.py install --record installed-files.txt
Leekspin will install a script named… leekspin. To use it to generate 20 bridge descriptors, do:
$ leekspin -n 20
And to generate 20 relay descriptors:
$ leekspin -r -n 20
Should you decide to use this tool, and especially should you be so insane and to try hacking on it, you will likely find bugs. You may find bugs in Leekspin, BridgeDB, Stem, Tor’s specifications , and possibly even in Tor. Please, for math’s sake! Report them! The Tor developers will love you forever. You can report bugs here on our issue tracker .
