How to encrypt external hard drive to be readable on any OS?

Anyone know any program that works in Ubuntu to encrypt files/disk? I'm looking for something that will ask you for a password to open files when you plug in the pendrive/portable hard disk. If possible, is there any program that can run in both Ubuntu and Windows 7?
