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 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 ( 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 - | gpg -c --passphrase secret -a -o
encrypted -

all one line which would create a symmetrically encrypted file called
encrypted with the password secret.

Hope this helps,
