for encryption, the easiest would be use SSL.  Https will encrypt your data just fine.  If you need your data to be further encrypted, i.e. you want to encrypt the data inside the body, use binary serialization for your payload, the binary w/ MS's Encryption Application Block.  .net also now has System.IO.Compression.GZipStream for zipping your files up.
