If each time Tor relay is started with a different key pair, would it be a problem for the Tor network to recognize it?


The relay would be considered 'new' each time. It would never gain the 'stable' flag or gain much consensus weight.
This would neither hurt nor help the network.

  • What if the same machine switches between only two different public keys? That is, does tor consider the mapping of public keys and IP addresses to tell whether a relay is stable, or public key is the only factor that matters? – xuhdev Jan 19 '15 at 1:07
  • Please add the comment as another question. This helps other to find the question and to answer it in a reasonable way. – Jens Kubieziel Jan 19 '15 at 15:04
