This report covers the activity of Tails in February 2018.

Everything in this report is public.

A. VeraCrypt support in GNOME

A.4 Add VeraCrypt support to udisks

We added support for unlocking system volumes and using VeraCrypt PIMs in udisks (#15215) and libblockdev (#15216). During this work we discovered two bugs in cryptsetup, which will be fixed in the next cryptsetup release (#366,#367).

The features for VeraCrypt support in udisks and libblockdev are now all implemented, so we created pull requests for our work in libblockdev and udisks.

A.5 Add VeraCrypt support to GNOME Disks

We extended the volume unlock dialog in GNOME Disks to allow specifying the parameters required to unlock VeraCrypt volumes (#15217).

The features for VeraCrypt support in GNOME Disks are now also complete, so we asked the maintainers to review and merge our work.

B. Additional software

B.5 Implement offline mode

The offline mode will be released in Tails 3.6 (#14570) and this activity is completed.
