Does any one know of such a package? Drag and drop would be nice - looking for a simple package to encrypt and password protect selectable files and folders
I searched for something similar (had to be open source and cross
platform) about a year ago and the only thing I found was Truecrypt
It doesn't fit your description exactly but may be useable. I don't
think they have an RPM available for Fedora leaving you to compile from
source. You have to recompile upon kernel upgrades too...

I found a site that makes rpms of TrueCrypt. I wish it could be
included in the extras. I had a pain getting all the source files to
compile TrueCrypt.

I was informed by one of our IT staff that there is now a way to get Ubuntu to encrypt home directories through synaptic. I may have to move to Ubuntu for this.
I want my whole Hard drive encrypted as well as user level encryption.
I have done some reading about fuse and dm-crypt but have not had time
to test.
There are some howtos around on doing this.
