Probably you meant to say the drive should be formatted as ffs instead of ufs to prevent the read permission from bad guy?
What are you talking about? I was replying to your post.

You claimed, that setting chmod 600 would stop someone from accessing your file.. that's incorrect, if someone plugged your drive in their BSD computer they could mount the partition and use "their local root account" to read the file.

Encryption would be the only option.. please re-read my initial posts, I was very clear.

That's exactly what I said , I thought you were implying otherwise.
