I have a NAS I want to network mount to my computer to be used over the LAN and over the internet. I need the connection to be encrypted so I tried SFTP but found the transfer speed to be really slow (about 30Mbit/s with a 1Gbit connection). This seems to be a known issue. I am currently looking for alternatives that would fit these requirements.

Are there any linux tools that would allow me to network mount drives at a high speed while also keeping everything encrypted?

You could try sshfs, however this uses sftp as its underlaying protocol, yet combine this with ssh's compression feature and you might get the speed you want.
