Create encrypted tar file

one of the way to create a encrypted tar file under linux

  $ tar -zcvf - stuff|openssl des3 -salt -k secretpassword | dd of=stuff.des3           
          This will create stuff.des3...don't forget the password you                            
          put in place of  secretpassword. This can be done interactive as                       
            $ dd if=stuff.des3 |openssl des3 -d -k secretpassword|tar zxf -                      
     NOTE:  above there is a "-" at the end... this will                                         
            extract everything.
