Describe consensus digest calculation
Hi lovely network team folks. No doubt I'm being blind but I'm having difficulty figuring out how to calculate network status document digests.
During the voting period (minutes 55-60 of the hour) I fetched the detached signatures and upcoming consensus. The detached signatures cite the digest...
% curl http://18.104.22.168:9131/tor/status-vote/next/consensus-signatures > sigs % curl http://22.214.171.124:9131/tor/status-vote/next/consensus > next_consensus % grep consensus-digest sigs consensus-digest 296BA01987256A1C8EFB20E17667152DCFA50755
But in trying hex encoded sha1s of various ranges of the consensus I'm having difficulty getting a value that matches that. No doubt I'm missing something but the spec is unhelpfully vague saying simply 'this is the digest' without citing a section describing how it's calculated...
It's probably buried in there somewhere but I've skimmed through the spec a few times and it's not jumping out at me. Mind clarifying in the spec how to calculate this?
