#8018 closed enhancement (implemented)

path-spec does not discuss guard rotation

Description

It is known (http://cacr.uwaterloo.ca/techreports/2012/cacr2012-11.pdf) that clients rotate their guard sets every 30-60 days (length randomly chosen). This behavior is not discussed in the path specification (torspec.git/path-spec.txt). This is important for users and researchers to understand security.

It makes sense to do this once #8240 is merged.

#8240 is now merged in 0.2.4, so I should do this.

These tickets, though owned by me, are not deliverables I can realistically deliver by the 0.2.8 freeze window.

Deferring big/risky-feature things (even the ones I really love!) to 0.3.0. Please argue if I'm wrong.

Resolution: implemented
Status: assignedclosed

Proposal 271 is now closed, and a new guard-spec.txt describes our guard behavior in detail. The path-spec.txt section that once described guard selection has been removed. All this as of 6fddd69ec0671f1b83294c1a4f15d281368aea86.
