Secure remote backup

  1. Which to use: rsync (over EncFS over SSHFS), Duplicity, rdiff-backup?
  2. Criteria?
    1. Remote: backup over LAN or Internet to remote host, preferably off-site.
    2. Secure: backup and transfers must be encrypted. (Better to not trust remote host — it's safer, and adds flexibility.)
    3. Simple recovery. (Mirrored file-system would be far more convenient than archive files (eg, tarballs).)
    4. Bandwidth: uploads must be efficient, ie transfer only deltas, because frequent and behind asymmetric connection.
    5. History (versions)
