    Why would you need to? You can make files / directories so they are only readable by the user, or you can add a user to a group and make the files so they are only readable by that group.

    If security is a concern, along with setting permissions correctly as Gone Fishing recommends, you might think about encryption. Here is some documentation to look at:
