Follow-up Comment #2, bug #56633 (project octave):

As a second different opinion from Kai, I do not think this is a request for
obfuscation, but a request for a genuine privacy extension that would protect
user's data and programs. This is not against the ideals of the free software

However, I do think this is entirely outside of the scope of Octave. Privacy
software is really hard to get right, and Octave is already hard enough. I do
not think it is worth the risk to Octave and its maintainers to try to take
something like this on.

I would recommend using the GnuPG program to encrypt and decrypt files as
needed, and maybe something like an encrypted loopback device to host the
files while they are temporarily decrypted to be read by Octave.
