Default Reading paging files.

I noticed during mounting the NTFS partition on the laptop that the Windows paging file could be read with vi or any text editor. This made me wonder,"Can a Linux or BSD swap partition or swap file be read in the same manner? Can swap be read while it is active?"
I am asking these questions in regard to security .
