See <>.

Circuit and link cryptography are described in tor-spec.txt .
dir-spec.txt describes cryptography used to authenticate Tor's
directory, and rend-spec.txt describes cryptography used to
authenticate hidden services (and their clients, when required by a
hidden service) and secure the connection between the client and
hidden service.
