Is there any application in cacko to password-encrypt and decrypt files?
Or - alternative -, to block others from starting special Programs?
The only applications i found are for text-encryption.

I would like to see a solution, which protects special documents without the need to protect the whole machine.

Anyone knows more?

Give ccrypt a try. There's an ARM binary on the site, but it's an older version. I compiled the latest version myself and it works well on the SL-6000 with Sharp ROM v1.12 (binary is attached below, just move it to a directory on your path as ccrypt (no .txt)). Ccrypt works by encrypting files and directories, so it's not designed to transparently encrypted a disk volume. A big plus for ccrypt is that it is available for lots of OSs/HW -- you can sync your files securely with whatever OS you like and decrypt them on the remote system.

Works, thank you, aki!
Unfortunately i use the files very often, so i always would have to use the qkonsole, which could be quite complicated and critical for mistyping.
