[Samba] how to block a folder with password

I would like to prevent access to a whole folder and its contents with
a password or something like that.
Is it possible?
This is for sensitive information and I would like to avoid to set up
a password for each document contained inside this repository, present
inside a user profile.
>From the linux adm point of view, if also the sys admins have not to
be able to view the contents of the files, which kind of possibilities
do I have? Encryption of file system? Could it be done on a folder
basis or only at file system level?
How do you manage sensitive information (es. salaries positions or
others) distributed across smb?

Thanks in advance for any tip or suggestion.

Best regards,
