Appendix F – Issuance of Certificates for .onion Domain Names

cabf-TorServiceDescriptorHash OBJECT IDENTIFIER ::= { }
TorServiceDescriptorHash:: = SEQUENCE {
algorithm  AlgorithmIdentifier
subjectPublicKeyHash BIT STRING  }
Where the AlgorithmIdentifier is a hashing algorithm (defined in RFC 6234) performed over the raw Public Key of the .onion service and SubjectPublicKeyHash is the value of the hash output of the raw Public Key.
