How to easily deploy a TOR hidden service



Hi fellas,

I found an interesting docker image on Docker Hub, dedicated to TOR hidden service deployement. The README is self explainatory and worth a try. :wink:

Hmโ€ฆ frankly Iโ€™m not convinced that you need Docker to solve such a simple task. For instance, on Arch Linux itโ€™s as simple as:

  1. Install nginx or any service you need to hide:
sudo pacman -S nginx
sudo systemctl enable nginx
sudo systemctl start nginx
  1. Install tor:
sudo pacman -S tor torsocks
  1. Modify /etc/tor/torrc:
HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/hidden_service/
HiddenServicePort 80
# optional: one more service
HiddenServicePort 22
  1. Start tor service automatically:
sudo systemctl enable tor
sudo systemctl start tor
  1. Donโ€™t forget to backup /var/lib/tor/hidden_service/
