Dear VeraCrypt,

Is it possible to have a hidden OS under Linux as it is provided under windows?
I did try to follow the instructions for hidden OS. however some functions ware not shown in the "veracrypt 1.of-2 linux X64" version

as the system is used for developing under Linux and it’s also required to be used for penning testing under Linux. I have the environment for the developing software already running. to secure the client data, the Penetration Testing OS need to be hidden. A hidden volume just not cover all our activities that needs to be hidden.

please tell me what i did wrong or when the option is planned to be implemented.

It is not possible to encrypt either Linux OS or create a hidden Linux OS.

There are no plans to implement system encryption for Linux or Mac OSX.
