I'm not sure what program does this but in mine, if I right click on a 
file or directory in Konqueror, I can select to encrypt it in the 
actions part of the menu.  I have done this before and it does work.  I 
think it uses Kgpg but not sure.  I know I use the same password I gave it.

Hope that helps.
