Is there an ereader that has a logon?

Hiya Folks
I would like an ereader that I can store contact information on in whatever format it takes although I would prefer pdf.
I need an ereader that requires some type of authentication for access. Does such a beastie exist?

I'll expand my requirements a bit. I probably should have done this at the start.

Lightweight. I want to carry this in a backpack while I ride.
Cheaper than an IPad. Because there is every chance that I'll break it tossing the bag around.
I don't require all the IPad functionality and would prefer not to pay for it.
Enough memory on board (not a card for security unless it is encrypted) for about 100 pdf documents at screen resolution.

Supply a model that fit your price so we can see if they have a lock feature.

So far I haven't seen any e-reader that comes close. Supply any model that came close as an example.
