TLS for Tor hidden service

Is TLS not implemented for the hidden service? I am able to access http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/ but https://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/ gives me "Unable to connect" in Firefox. Are there any plans to add TLS in the future?

Hi. That's correct, the hidden onion service doesn't use TLS. We've looked into this and it wouldn't provide our users with extra security beyond what Tor already offers.

There's a good write-up of the issue and related discussions on the Tor project's blog: https://blog.torproject.org/blog/faceboo...
