There is a program called crypt which comes with FreeBSD which provides basic single-rotor encryption, which is fine for casual use but can be decrypted via bigram/trigram analysis easily by someone who knows what they are doing. If you want strong encryption, look towards GnuPG from security/gnupg, or possibly towards OpenPGP or even the commercial variant.
