Encrypting selected files ...

I have been asked to look into the issue of encrypting sensitive information that is stored in our source code repository. We have quite a few users of our repository, many of whom are overseas.

99.99% of what's in our repository is just source code that everyone needs. However there are a few files that contain production usernames, passwords and other references to assets that we would like to encrypt and allow access only to selected users or those with an encryption key.

I know that we can restrict access on a directory by directory basis and this option is being considered. However, I'd prefer to allow these files to be comingled with other source code files.

Are there any facilities in Subversion for encrypting individual files?

If not, does anyone have any recommendations for tools that might be effective for encrypting individual files?

Is it possible to implement some sort of 'hook' in subversion that can be instructed to encrypt / decrypt selected files for selected users?

Thoughts, idea on this topic?
