Results of the online survey on *file storage encryption*
---------------------------------------------------------
+### Summary
+
+- Justification of our work:
+
+ - 40% of Tails users are also VeraCrypt users, both inside and outside
+ Tails.
+ - 60% of Tails+VeraCrypt users only use VeraCrypt outside of Tails.
+ - VeraCrypt is of more interest to people who are not using Linux as
+ their primary operating system.
+ - VeraCrypt is still a reference when people think about encrypting
+ files.
+ - Most of Tails+VeraCrypt users are serious and regular users of
+ VeraCrypt.
+ - *« When I move files between Windows and Tails, I have to remove the
+ TrueCrypt encryption and copy the files unencrypted to another USB
+ stick. Then I have to securely delete the files from the USB stick
+ and that takes a lot of time. This is dangerous as an attacker could
+ access my files during the process. »*
+ - *« I need to be able to open TrueCrypt file containers in Tails in
+ order to move files securely between Tails and Windows. Right now, I
+ have to copy my files unencrypted between Tails and Windows and this
+ is quite dangerous. »*
+
+- Definition of the scope of our work:
+
+ - 76% of Tails+VeraCrypt users use file containers.
+ - 65% of Tails+VeraCrypt users use partitions.
+ - 65% of Tails+VeraCrypt users use hidden volumes.
+ - 42% of Tails+VeraCrypt users use keyfiles.
+ - 55% of Tails+VeraCrypt users have legacy TrueCrypt volumes.
+ - 85% of Tails+VeraCrypt users mostly don't use the .TC or .HC file
+ extension.
+
+- Technical knowledge of Tails users:
+
+ - Tails is still quite complicated for Windows users but not *that*
+ hard either.
+ - A majority of our user base is "*basic*".
+
+### Methodology
+
We advertised an online survey on the homepage of *Tor Browser* in Tails
between October 17 and December 1.
