Tor Browser 9.5 allows website publishers to advertise their onion service to Tor users by adding HTTP headers. When Onion Location is enabled, Tor users will be prompted to opt-in to upgrade to the onion service.
Now, onion service administrators who want to add an extra layer of security to their website can set a pair of keys for access and control.
