Obviously, if you're looking at encrypted filesystems the encryption
should be in the filesystem layer, which is part of the kernel on pretty
much every mainstream OS out there.

There are many ways to do this, and quite a few that actually work, and
since only a few people use encrypted filesystems on different hosts,
there's little reason for standardization.

I'd recommend you to use an OpenPGP application (GnuPG?) and some
portable archiving format. Be sure to scrub whatever disk you worked on
when done.
