Big believer in Open Source and Linux in general. I hold a current RHCE certification from RedHat and have used RedHat since Redhat 4.1 (Vanderbilt) in 1997, so I know quite a bit about RedHat and Fedora and my answers are very heavily swayed toward the RedHat way.

comment How to create unreadable files in linux
Maybe I am missing what is being asked here. By the comments it sounds like you are trying to create a configuration file that is shared to others on other systems but is not able to be read by them and at the same time readable by something that doesn't know anything about an encryption algorithm. If that is the case, this is not possible...At all. You can control permissions of a file on a particular system as others have noted below, but it isn't possible to have a file that is readable by some and not by others across systems unless you are doing something like public key cryptography.
