There is not. Current recommendation is to use an encrypted file
system. E.g. on Ubuntu Linux there is a standard option to encrypt
your home folder. On other systems you can install products that will
encrypt a specific folder.

Put the zim notebook in such a folder and all is save. Jsut unlock the
folder before opening zim (or use the automount plugin.)

In principle yes, but will require some hacking in other parts of zim
as well. Would need to add a step in the file system code such that
the plugin can decrypt a file before it is read by the notebook.
