Ever hear of Secure NFS? It uses RPC-SUN (just like the secure X
implementations), and while it doesn't use SSH(tm) it does use
public keys and random session ciphers.
There's also RPC-GSSAPI, which ties Kerberos authentication/encryption
into the RPC layer.
But neither is really supported on Linux, partially due to the
odd fetish for SSH/SSL, so there's the third option which is running
NFS over (Open)SSH tunnels. There was a detailed article in SysAdmin
a few months ago on how to do this.
