ReadyNAS NVX and Linux encryption

    Before I buy such one I really need to be sure that I can have encryption on
    this device. I want to use it to store my personal backup at a remote side.

    Is it possible to do a rsync (with SSH) from my CentOS box to the ReadyNAS
    box where I store my files on an encrypted partition or alike? Note that I
    cannot encrypt the files I transfer as I do an incremental backup (with
    rsync), so the source rsync must be able to see its raw files on destination
    ReadyNAS.

    I only see this would be possible if the RNAS box natively (or through an
    addon) would be able to do some kind of secure encryption where it fx. asks
    for a password once it reboots. Just like the Linux LUKS dm-crypt stuff
    works.

    Speed/throughput on the RNAS is not that important as it will be located
    remotely anyhow.

    Any insights?
