You could always implement encryption yourself and
send the files between REBOL client program to
REBOL server using a custom protocol. There are any
number of free sources describing cryptographic
algorithms on the web; the main problem with
implementing them in REBOL may be performance,
since REBOL isn't entirely a speed demon for
math, as I understand it.
