This post was not helpful: How to protect a hidden service against DDOS attack?
My onion keeps getting hit with denial of service attacks. Is there anything I can do to minimize the effects? POST attacks, so Layer 7?.
I found a few things on in the tor manual about rate-limiting but I'm not entirely sure if modifying these options will do any good.
If this option is set, then Tor’s rate-limiting applies not only to remote connections, but also to connections to private addresses like 127.0.0.1 or 10.0.0.1. This is mostly useful for debugging rate-limiting. (Default: 0)
The maximum number of simultaneous streams (connections) per rendezvous circuit. (Setting this to 0 will allow an unlimited number of simultaneous streams.) (Default: 0)
Any suggestions would be great. Thank you!
