#6415 closed defect (fixed)

rendclient.c doesn't set auth_len in INTRODUCE1 sometimes

While working on 6177, I've discovered that when auth_type is REND_NO_AUTH, rend_client_send_introduction() leaves auth_len uninitialized. This worked with the old INTRODUCE2 parsing code in rend_service_introduce(), but doesn't match the spec and broke with my initial rewrite of the parser. I'll make sure my new rend_service_introduce() handles this behavior, but it should still get fixed - it should be a pretty quick fix.

Turns out it *does not emit* auth_len when auth_type == REND_NO_AUTH, actually, so the format parsed by the old rend_service_introduce() fails to match the spec in such a way that changing it to handle the specified format would cause it to break on existing rendclient.c. Looks like the least painful option would be to change the spec to match this behavior.

Hm. Can we change the spec, leave the parser tolerant, _and_ emit the correct format? Or does the current parser not parse the correct format either?

Ah, we can't make the parser tolerate the right format, and it doesn't tolerate the right format. Yeah, just changing the spec is the right thing to do.

See branch "bug6415" in my public torspec repository. Does it look okay to you?

Looks good; that matches the code in rendclient.c.
