comment encrypted backups for Linux and FreeBSD readable for both
not exactly. i don't need it to be block-by-block and i don't need it to be over network (though the tools you suggest seem very interesting). the problem is rather (as it had been correctly understood by Zoredache and Ярослав Рахматуллин) that if either of the systems break down for some reason i need some way to access the backups. so the backups should be stored on an encrypted filesystem (on another disk) accessible to both systems. this poses a problem as both the native encryption systems and the native filesystems of linux and freebsd are incompatible. sorry for not responding earlier.

Thanks very much to both of you for your thoughts. I hope some time in the future someone will port LUKS to FreeBSD or geli to Linux (I unfortunately lack both the necessary programming skills / experience and the time to acquire them.)
