'rsyncrypto' lets you encrypt a file or directory structure in such a way that they can later be synchronized to another machine using rsync. This means that local changes to the plain text file result in local changes to the cipher text file. 'rsyncrypto' compresses the plain text file then encrypts it with gzip using the "rsyncable" patch, which is available from the rsync sources.
