Hosting your own .onion domain

Tor is the very much popular for being anonymous over the internet. Tor allows to user to protect user privacy. TOR name origin from The Onion Router. Tor protects the privacy of the user as it does not save any log files. Most of the Government agencies or enforcement law keep an surveillance over the internet like the most popular search engine google. But in tor everything is anonymous. This project was developed in 2002. As Tor consists of huge proxies uses tor relays and nodes to stay anonymous over the internet. Tor creates an tunnel where it bounces an user from different relays.

TOR Routing
  • Hosting tor service is very easy and you can also host your own website on TOR. 

According to ethical hacking researcher of international institute of cyber security creating an custom tor link is not so difficult. This method mostly used by spammers who try to sell irrelevant content on the deep web.

For showing you we are using Kali linux.

Hosting a Web Server in Tor :-

  • Before hosting the service on the tor it is recommended to test the Tor default hosting service. For Testing the default service we are using apache server. You can use any web server.
  • For starting the server type sudo service apache2 start
root@kali:/home/iicybersecurity# sudo service apache2 restart
  • Then for checking if the server has started type ps -ef | grep apache2
root@kali:/var/lib/tor/hidden_service# ps -ef | grep apache2
root 1514 1 0 Dec25 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

  • After executing the above command . Go to tor configuration page and edit the torrc.
  • Type cd /etc/tor
  • Then type ls
  • Type nano torrc
  • Then press ctrl+w and type location-hidden
  • In that section remove # from HiddenService as shown below.

Configuration file for a typical Tor user
Last updated 9 October 2013 for Tor 0.2.5.2-alpha.
(may or may not work for much older or much newer versions of Tor.)
#
Lines that begin with "## " try to explain what's going on. Lines
that begin with just "#" are disabled commands: you can enable them
by removing the "#" symbol.
#
See 'man tor', or https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-manual.html,
for more options you can use in this file.
#
Tor will look for this file in various places based on your platform:
https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq#torrc
Tor opens a socks proxy on port 9050 by default -- even if you don't
configure one below. Set "SocksPort 0" if you plan to run Tor only
as a relay, and not make any local application connections yourself.
SocksPort 9050 # Default: Bind to localhost:9050 for local connections.
SocksPort 192.168.0.1:9100 # Bind to this address:port too.
Entry policies to allow/deny SOCKS requests based on IP address.
First entry that matches wins. If no SocksPolicy is set, we accept
all (and only) requests that reach a SocksPort. Untrusted users who
can access your SocksPort may be able to learn about the connections
you make.
SocksPolicy accept 192.168.0.0/16
SocksPolicy reject *
Logs go to stdout at level "notice" unless redirected by something
else, like one of the below lines. You can have as many Log lines as
you want.
#
We advise using "notice" in most cases, since anything more verbose
may provide sensitive information to an attacker who obtains the logs.
#
Send all messages of level 'notice' or higher to /var/log/tor/notices.log
Log notice file /var/log/tor/notices.log
Send every possible message to /var/log/tor/debug.log
Log debug file /var/log/tor/debug.log
Use the system log instead of Tor's logfiles
Log notice syslog
To send all messages to stderr:
Log debug stderr
Uncomment this to start the process in the background… or use
--runasdaemon 1 on the command line. This is ignored on Windows;
see the FAQ entry if you want Tor to run as an NT service.
RunAsDaemon 1
The directory for keeping all the keys/etc. By default, we store
things in $HOME/.tor on Unix, and in Application Data\tor on Windows.
DataDirectory /var/lib/tor
The port on which Tor will listen for local connections from Tor
controller applications, as documented in control-spec.txt.
ControlPort 9051
If you enable the controlport, be sure to enable one of these
authentication methods, to prevent attackers from accessing it.

######### This section is just for location-hidden services
Once you have configured a hidden service, you can look at the
contents of the file "…/hidden_service/hostname" for the address
to tell people.
#
HiddenServicePort x y:z says to redirect requests on port x to the
address y:z.

########## This section is just for relays
#
See https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-doc-relay for details.
Required: what port to advertise for incoming Tor connections.
ORPort 9001
If you want to listen on a port other than the one advertised in
ORPort (e.g. to advertise 443 but bind to 9090), you can do it as
follows. You'll need to do ipchains or other port forwarding
yourself to make this work.
ORPort 443 NoListen
ORPort 127.0.0.1:9090 NoAdvertise
The IP address or full DNS name for incoming connections to your
relay. Leave commented out and Tor will guess.
Address noname.example.com
If you have multiple network interfaces, you can specify one for
outgoing traffic to use.
OutboundBindAddress 10.0.0.5
A handle for your relay, so people don't have to refer to it by key.
Nickname ididnteditheconfig
Define these to limit how much relayed traffic you will allow. Your
own traffic is still unthrottled. Note that RelayBandwidthRate must
be at least 20 KB.
Note that units for these config options are bytes per second, not bits
per second, and that prefixes are binary prefixes, i.e. 2^10, 2^20, etc.
RelayBandwidthRate 100 KB # Throttle traffic to 100KB/s (800Kbps)
RelayBandwidthBurst 200 KB # But allow bursts up to 200KB/s (1600Kbps)
Use these to restrict the maximum traffic per day, week, or month.
Note that this threshold applies separately to sent and received bytes,
not to their sum: setting "4 GB" may allow up to 8 GB total before
hibernating.
#
Set a maximum of 4 gigabytes each way per period.
AccountingMax 4 GB
Each period starts daily at midnight (AccountingMax is per day)
AccountingStart day 00:00
Each period starts on the 3rd of the month at 15:00 (AccountingMax
is per month)
AccountingStart month 3 15:00
Administrative contact information for this relay or bridge. This line
can be used to contact you if your relay or bridge is misconfigured or
something else goes wrong. Note that we archive and publish all
descriptors containing these lines and that Google indexes them, so
spammers might also collect them. You may want to obscure the fact that
it's an email address and/or generate a new address for this purpose.
ContactInfo Random Person
You might also include your PGP or GPG fingerprint if you have one:
ContactInfo 0xFFFFFFFF Random Person
Uncomment this to mirror directory information for others. Please do
if you have enough bandwidth.
DirPort 9030 # what port to advertise for directory connections
If you want to listen on a port other than the one advertised in
DirPort (e.g. to advertise 80 but bind to 9091), you can do it as
follows. below too. You'll need to do ipchains or other port
forwarding yourself to make this work.
DirPort 80 NoListen
DirPort 127.0.0.1:9091 NoAdvertise
Uncomment to return an arbitrary blob of html on your DirPort. Now you
can explain what Tor is if anybody wonders why your IP address is
contacting them. See contrib/tor-exit-notice.html in Tor's source
distribution for a sample.
DirPortFrontPage /etc/tor/tor-exit-notice.html
Uncomment this if you run more than one Tor relay, and add the identity
key fingerprint of each Tor relay you control, even if they're on
different networks. You declare it here so Tor clients can avoid
using more than one of your relays in a single circuit. See
https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq#MultipleRelays
However, you should never include a bridge's fingerprint here, as it would
break its concealability and potentionally reveal its IP/TCP address.
MyFamily $keyid,$keyid,…
A comma-separated list of exit policies. They're considered first
to last, and the first match wins. If you want to replace
the default exit policy, end this with either a reject : or an
accept :. Otherwise, you're augmenting (prepending to) the
default exit policy. Leave commented to just use the default, which is
described in the man page or at
https://www.torproject.org/documentation.html
#
Look at https://www.torproject.org/faq-abuse.html#TypicalAbuses
for issues you might encounter if you use the default exit policy.
#
If certain IPs and ports are blocked externally, e.g. by your firewall,
you should update your exit policy to reflect this -- otherwise Tor
users will be told that those destinations are down.
#
For security, by default Tor rejects connections to private (local)
networks, including to your public IP address. See the man page entry
for ExitPolicyRejectPrivate if you want to allow "exit enclaving".
#
ExitPolicy accept *:6660-6667,reject *:* # allow irc ports but no more
ExitPolicy accept *:119 # accept nntp as well as default exit policy
ExitPolicy reject : # no exits allowed
Bridge relays (or "bridges") are Tor relays that aren't listed in the
main directory. Since there is no complete public list of them, even an
ISP that filters connections to all the known Tor relays probably
won't be able to block all the bridges. Also, websites won't treat you
differently because they won't know you're running Tor. If you can
be a real relay, please do; but if not, be a bridge!
BridgeRelay 1
By default, Tor will advertise your bridge to users through various
mechanisms like https://bridges.torproject.org/. If you want to run
a private bridge, for example because you'll give out your bridge
address manually to your friends, uncomment this line:
PublishServerDescriptor 0

  • As you can see the tor service is not running. Now you have to copy the eschalot generated onion RSA keys into the tor hidden_service.
  • For that type cd /var/lib/tor/hidden_service
  • Then type ls
  • Type rm hostname
root@kali:/home/iicybersecurity/Downloads/eschalot# cd /var/lib/tor/hidden_service/
root@kali:/var/lib/tor/hidden_service# ls
hostname private_key
root@kali:/var/lib/tor/hidden_service# rm hostname
root@kali:/var/lib/tor/hidden_service# ls
private_key
  • Now you have to edit the private_key. Open private key and enter the RSA key which is generated eschalot into the private_key.
  • Copy the entire RSA key from where you have downloaded the eschalot. Copy entire key from
    —–BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY—– to
    —–END RSA PRIVATE KEY—– as shown below.
  • Type nano private_key copy the key.
  • Then open another terminal
  • And type TOR to start tor in the Kali Linux.
root@kali:/var/lib/tor/hidden_service# nano private_key
GNU nano 2.9.8 private_key
