Personally, I solved that problem using a preprocessing program. The
idea was to not share any key data with the destination. If that's
interesting to you, do check out rsyncrypto

What it does is to encrypt the files prior to rsyncing them. The twist
is that the files are encrypted in a way that does not obliterate the
wire efficiency of applying rsync to the encrypted files.
