How to create some kind of package with a password using only .NET

I have a shared drive where I want to put a folder of files.

These files I will make available to a small app that is running on a number of pcs.  My app will copy the files locally and use them.

I would like to have the files/folder on the shared drive protected from people looking at them. I don't need anything fancy just a password is fine.

This all points towards a zip file but I don't want to use a 3rd party library nor I think shell32 which can unzip some files.

Thus is there a .net namespace that can put files together and have them protected with a password?

I am targeting .net 4 and visual basic, but a C# answer should be ok.

You could use file encryption.
Until your deployment app decrypts them, they would be unuseable.
