    Not without additional software. You can, however, create a password-protected Disk Image using Disk Utility, which will provide the same basic service.

    Launch Disk Utility (Applications:Utilities:Disk Utility)

    Click "New Image" from the tool bar.

    Set the name, size, encryption settings.

    Click "Create"

    You'll now have a .dmg file that will require a password each time you open it. Just don't have Keychain store the password.
