If you just want to encrypt the files with a password, openssl works
well and can be found pretty well on any platform.
[cage]% echo "this is a test" | openssl enc -aes-128-cbc -base64 -k
[cage]% echo "U2FsdGVkX1+gkWRJo5W7PGBLpilZmlEx3+cKML+32to=" | openssl
aes-128-cbc -d -base64 -k pass
this is a test
But you really want to take a look at /usr/ports/security/gnupg. It
seems all a bit confusing at first, but its a much better way to
encrypt data and manage who has access to decode files without having
to use a common passphrase.
It as well will work across multiple platforms
