I'm confused.

Which password are you thinking of?

Is it at the OS level to prevent access to the file
  - in which case the fact that its a zipfile is immaterial.
Or is it the zipfile's own password? In which case what
is different from the "default password to read the file"?

What exactly are you trying to achieve?
