Yes!  Start with "gpg".  There's a lot of informations in their web site
<>.  Also, see the manual page of "gpg" and pay
attention to the options "--encrypt", and "--decrypt".

Also, you might be interested with "losetup" and the option "-e".  See
"man losetup" for more information about that.  As always, if you need
any inquires or questions, just ask again here and will be glad to (try
to) help.

You're welcome.

(Note [Off-Topic]:  In my previous message, a put some marks ("journal
file-system"¹, "wipe"², and "shred"³) that I forgot to include the
footnotes for them.  I was going to explain the difference between a
"journal" and a "non-journal" file-system and include the addresses of
the homepage for the utilities "shred" and "wipe", but this seems
unnecessary now.)
