At the risk of blowing my own trumpet, I tried writing up suggestions for
hardening hidden services to preserve their anonymity:


...although the above was written long before I got seriously into EOTK,
and into the amazing benefits of using Unix-domain sockets to connect my
webservers and tor-daemons.

Aside: the benefits of Unix-domain sockets include:

- massively increased resistance to socket-table-filling
denial-of-onion-service attacks, and faster recovery times
- (probably) lower latency
- reduced (but not eliminated) risk of IP metadata leakage of internet
address, etc, because less reliance on network addresses

But between *that* document, and some of the tech in EOTK, there may be
some useful hardening tips for you.
