Veracrypt Support

For Backup to an usb hd, it would be fabulous if ADM would support Veracrypt encrypted Volumes.
The way I imagine, I connect the drive the first time, set up an (existing) encrypted volume as backup target and keep the keys within the nas.
Every time I connect the usb hd and press the backup button, the volume is mounted, backed up runs and than the volume is dismounted.
I could keep the drive on the nas, I could mount it on any computer with veracrypt and access my backup data.

Also it would be nice to plug in and mount a veracrypt volume to get files into the nas.

Currently I try to use Linux Center / debian server and mount volumes from there. Automation and easy access to veracrypt volumes could be a great benefit to all users already using veracrypt on their removable drives

I'm still using TrueCrypt on my external disks, but It would be nice to have it for external disks, and for internal shared folders too ( mounting them at boot, same manner has encrypted folders without automout at boot feature )

Its possible to install the cli version of veracrypt from
download the "Generic Installers", extract the veracrypt*setup-console-x64 (* is 1.24-Hotfix1 atm)
ssh to your machine,
cd to the directory with the installfile
run "sudo ./veracrypt-1.24-Hotfix1-setup-console-x64" (or whatever version is current)

then you can manually mount / dismount. the mounted veracrypt-devices cannot be seen via adm, but you can create a softlink with
ln -s /media/veracrypt1/ ~/veracrypt
and then easily access the mounted directory e.g. form kodi via /share/home/

my usecase is to mount, backup (rsync) and dismount, which can be easily semi-automated into an shell script (I don't rely on a keyfile on the nas as I wont to be able to mount the drive anywhere without thee need of an additional file in case of dataloss)
