Encrypted disks, MacOS X Questions

Lets say I'm using the built-in AES disk images, from DiskCopy.app. I use a disk image that is located on a remote machine, over some sort of file sharing protocol like AFP or NFS. I can now put things on this encrypted volume, and the encryption is all done locally (and the .dmg file goes over the network). All good so far.
So, my question is, how do I rsync onto this? Normally, when I rsync onto a remote machine, I use -e ssh, which starts an rsync process on each side. As long as the source or dest is an encrypted volume, done locally, I can't see how to rsync properly (a normal rsync command will take longer than copying, as it would need to read all of each file over the network multiple times, right?).

I don't think this is possible, but I wanted to pose the question anyway just to see if anyone had ideas. The paramaters don't need to be apple disk images and rsync, I suppose - other suggestions for incremental transfer to remote encrypted storage, while doing all the encryption locally, would also be welcomed.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Check out this Mac OS X Hints story [macosxhints.com] ; also, you might post that question in their forums there as you'll most likely get somebody having done that already. :)
