Then what about encfs? Put your data onto a encfs mountpoint, and then
rsync the encrypted version instead.
That's what we do for sensitive backups. It allows you to "outsource" an
operational role like backups to one group - without giving them
administrative access to the data (which happens with standard backups).
We NFS mount a share that is backed up, "encfs" over that mountpoint,
and then backup onto the encfs. The end NFS share ends up with fully
encrypted filenames and data. It's no good to anyone without the key...
