Loopback Encrypted Filesystem HOWTO
Copyright by Ryan T. Rhea,

This document explains how to setup and then use a filesystem
that, when mounted by a user, dynamically and transparently
encrypts its contents. The filesystem is stored in a regular
file, which can be hidden or named non-conspicuously such that it
would most likely be overlooked. This allows for a high level of
secure storage of data.
