You could do something like this:

Code: Select all

ssh user@host cat /home/abc.txt | aescrypt -e -p passkey -o abc.txt.aes -
That will encrypt in the local system, though.

To encrypt in the remote system, perhaps this:

Code: Select all

ssh user@host aescrypt -e -p passkey -o - /home/abc.txt >abc.txt.aes
