Hello Whonix Community,
I recently stumbled upon https://github.com/aforensics/HiddenVM. Upon first reading it seems to me like one of the most potent privacy and security solutions there is, however it has almost no publicly available user feedback, so I would love to hear from all of you.
In short, a hidden VeryCrypt volume containing Whonix, Virtualbox and HiddenVM is only mounted in Tails.
Tails is arguably the best anti-forensic solution there is at the moment, whilst Whonix is arguably the most secure and anonymous OS there is. In my eyes, this solution would grant the best of both worlds, plausible deniabilty of Whonix even existing when searched at an airport combined with the incredible usability of Whonix.
Now I know what you may think, this is a hobby project and any modifications of the concepts of Whonix and Tails which are not approved by the developers are dangerous in and of itself. However the scripts are open source and could be subject of intense peer review.
In my humble opinion, the idea of combing VeraCrypt and Tails to run Whonix solves almost all anti-forensic objections I had to Whonix, just imagine running a dummy OS in VeraCrypt, all airport security would find is that OS and a blank Tails USB (doesnt even use persistent storage).
So while you may regard HiddenVM as just another stupid hobby idea, I would love to take this opportunity and just honestly debate about its pros and cons.
Thank you! (Especially to the incredible devs, who are never tired of improving).
