#29007 assigned enhancement

PrivCount proof of concept: work out how to debug PrivCount

Priority: Medium Milestone: Tor: 0.4.1.x-final

Description

Let's debug PrivCount by splitting statistics into multiple categories:

  • public statistics: information that is already public
  • private statistics: information that is sensitive

We can safely log public statistics at any log level. We can publish public statistics' unencrypted, per-relay values and noise amounts in extrainfo descriptors.

We need a debug mode to log private statistics above info level. When we are in debug mode, and not using any public authorities, we can publish private statistics' unencrypted, per-relay values and noise amounts in extrainfo descriptors.

We'll work out other debugging mechanisms during the proof of concept process.

Let's review these tickets at the next meeting using our 041-proposed process.

They're on the roadmap, so the review should focus on ticket size and team capacity (and sponsor expectations).
