Long-story short, I'm building a social network, where each of my users has an onion address, and can sign their status updates with their private keys (so their friends can share them when they're offline). Hidden service V2 is very convenient for this:
The key hashes are short. The keys are in PEM format.
Is there a way to specify SHA512 hashing, with a 16-character URL length? 56 character URLs are inconvenient, and with all the focus TOR has placed on ease of use lately (ditching Vidalia so users had shorter wait times, and assured connection), one would think short URLs would be a consideration.
At the moment, I'm running on HiddenServiceVersion 2, but the software says support for that will soon be dropped. I need options.
