3
+
4
+TorDNSEL is an implementation of the active testing, DNS-based exit list
5
+for Tor exit nodes.  The implementation is available at
6
+
7
+  https://www.torproject.org/tordnsel/dist/
8
+
9
+The design and its rationale are described in the Tor sources at
10
+
11
+  /doc/contrib/torel-design.txt
12
+
13
+This document is an attempt to make sense of the exit list format that
14
+TorDNSEL publishes without the original TorDNSEL author being around.
15
+
16
+
17
+TorDNSEL publishes its exit test results in a single document with entries
18
+using the following format.  The document consists of an arbitrary number
19
+of entries each consisting of four or more lines:  (ExitNode | Published |
20
+LastStatus | ExitAddress*)*.  In the format below, keywords are written in
21
+double quotes and spaces and newlines are explicitly marked as SP and NL:
22
+
23
+  "ExitNode" SP fingerprint NL
24
+
25
+    The identity of the relay in upper-case hex characters.  This
26
+    fingerprint corresponds to the fingerprint in v2 and v3 network status
27
+    documents as specified in /doc/spec/dir-spec.txt in the Tor sources.
28
+
29
+  "Published" SP YYYY-MM-DD SP HH:MM:SS NL
30
+
31
+    The publication time, in UTC, of the most recent relay descriptor that
32
+    was known when the test was initiated.  No further test is initiated
33
+    until the relay publishes a new descriptor.
34
+
35
+  "LastStatus" SP YYYY-MM-DD SP HH:MM:SS NL
36
+
37
+    The last time, in UTC, when the relay was seen in a v2 network status
38
+    document.  A relay is discarded from the list if it was not seen in a
39
+    network status for at least 48 hours.
40
+
41
+  "ExitAddress" SP address SP YYYY-MM-DD SP HH:MM:SS NL
42
+
43
+    One or more test results for this relay consisting of the found exit
44
+    address and the time, in UTC, when the test was performed.  A test is
45
+    discarded from the list if it is older than 48 hours.
