The Tails project is working to make working with encrypted volumes easier. The developers are a testing new features which would make it easier for users to access VeraCrypt volumes from the GNOME desktop. "We worked to integrate VeraCrypt support into the existing GNOME workflow for unlocking encrypted volumes. As a result, most of the features already provided for LUKS volumes are now also provided for VeraCrypt volumes. This includes unlocking volumes via the GNOME Disks application and integration into the places sidebar in GNOME Files. If your file containers have the ".hc" file extension, they will be recognized as VeraCrypt volumes and can be easily unlocked in GNOME Files. Additionally, we created a small application, VeraCrypt Mounter, which makes it easier to unlock VeraCrypt volumes, especially file containers that do not have the ".hc" extension." The project's news page has further details.
