did you want to crypt the output or the incoming stream. If the server
the stream is coming from supports https then you can just wget
https://foo.bar.baz and it will pull down what you want over an ssl
encrypted connection. If the server does not support https then you'll
need to use something like TOR (http://tor.eff.org/) to encrypt the
stream coming into your computer.
To crypt the output just pipe the output from wget to your favourite
encryption ap.. something like:
wget -O - https://mail.google.com | gpg -c --passphrase secret -a -o
all one line which would create a symmetrically encrypted file called
encrypted with the password secret.
Hope this helps,
