I'm a physicist but I am very fond of Apple as a company and all their products and want to make my own contribution to the world of Mac OS X and iOS applications.

comment Block access to folder or file in Mac OS X
Till now the best solution which I have found is to use hdiutil or DiskUtility to create password encrypted sparse disk with contents of a folder. Then it will behave in many senses as a regular folder but will be definitely protected.

Ok. Now I see. Drawing it with CoreGraphics will be much more difficult than just making a raster image. Thanks a lot for screenshots.

comment Block access to folder or file in Mac OS X
I was thinking about this solution also. I created a separate user account with dedicated password and changed the owner of a folder to this user. But the problem is for not in security. That is not so important for me. I care more about usability. When you have folder which has different owner, you can't access it until you login in that account, right? So you can't just have a dialog box where you put your password, and get full access.

And just thinking about other possible options: Is it possible to make something like autorun file or another way to notificate my running program about opening some particular folder or file, so that it will not open directly but will be validated by this running program first?

Thanks. Quite interesting idea with encrypted DMG image. And what do you mean by using an app that accesses the file?
