Is there a FileVault alternative for Ubuntu that I can download from the software centre?

Encryption of your home folder is supported by Ubuntu out of the box. This is an option in the Ubuntu installer. See: EncryptedHome community wiki for more details.

If you want to encrypt a few files, here are a couple of possibilities:

  • Cryptkeeper allows you to create a directory where all files will be encrypted (the underlying encryption engine is encfs).
  • Easy Crypt allows you to create an encrypted volume, with a storage format compatible with TrueCrypt.
