Here is an application that will encrypt/decrypt files.

No but you can however create a disk image and add a password to that, open it up when using your mac, then when your about to sign off or whatever your doing, un mount the disk image. This is what most people do, and is fun to do just becuase you can on a mac, in a nut shell this is what file vault does on the fly...
