I'm reading https://gitweb.torproject.org/torspec.git/tree/rend-spec-v3.txt and it appears to me that the IP no longer receives a hidden service public key (what is now known as Master identity key), is that right?

If so, how can the IP verity that the HS is who it says to be? (In v2 the HS signed with his priv key the message to the IP when establishing a new one, and the IP used the pub key to verity the identity)

  • I don't think the IP needs to verify the identity of the HS since the client will verify this.
