eCrypt is one solution, here's a forum thread about this tool:

You may try Seahorse in Applications ->Accessories -> Passwords and Encryption keys
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AccessoriesApplications#Passwords%20and%20Encryption%20Keys

Files can be en/decrypted and signed via Seahorse.

Or in a terminal using symetric encryption e.g.:
encrypt:
gpg -c testfile

decrypt:
gpg -d testfile.gpg > testfile

After encryption you should of course shred the original:
shred testfile

Manuals about this commands are available in terminal like this:
man gpg
man shred
