Is it possible right now, with the current version of Tor, to use a distributed web of trust in Hidden Sevices' public keys, meaning:
- Public keys are uploaded to public keyservers
- Users can search for them by human meaningful names
- Users can download keys, sign them and share certificates, thus growing web of trust
- .onion addresses may then (RLY?) be derived locally on user side from keys
In effect users would have
Convenient bookmark lists, with human meaningful names to use in browsers and shareable peer-certified bookmarks.
Easy-to-check trust level for a particular Hidden Service a user is interested in.
By “is possible right now” I mean “end-user class software for Tor key managing does exist” (AFAIK, Tor still doesn't use OpenPGP, so GnuPG, etc. won't do). Getting “1.” done seems to be pretty trivial, if only (RLY?) is true.
