With SecureDrop, the viewing station requires Tails with persistent
storage, and you can only use persistent storage if you boot off of a
USB stick. (I haven't tried it yet, but you could probably get Tails
running in a VirtualBox with persistent storage as long as you're
booting the VM off of a real physical USB stick.)

SecureDrop also depends on hidden services. To see a good overview of
how the hidden services and Tails end up working in practice, see:
