Can other people on my WiFi network access the documents on the hard drive attached to my AirPort Extreme?

If I was to attach a hard drive to my AirPort Extreme, would anyone connected to my WiFi be able to access the documents I store on there? Or must I give guests permission to access these documents? Furthermore, can I assign a password for accessing the hard drive (separate to one for joining the WiFi network)?

Thanks

    Long story short, Yes you can password protect an external hard drive through the AirPort Utility app. I have an AirPort Extreme with an external HDD attached which requires a password to even see the attached hard drive.
