Seahorse is a GNOME application for managing encryption keys. sea
horse-tool allows you to encrypt, decrypt or sign files. It is inte‐
grated into the nautilus right-click menu, but can also be used from
the command line.
When you right click a file in Nautilus you have the option to 'Encrypt'
the file. When clicked this will open a Seahorse key "Choose Recipients"
You'll also find it in Applications|Accessories|Passwords and Encryption
