How to build a remote backup solution with no ongoing costs

I dont like local backup and dont want to pay for a monthly service, so I figure Id get a backup drive and give it to a friend, then schedule daily incremental backups over the web.

Problem is, getting it encrypted, and a program that can do this. Of course my friend is on home internet and using a static IP service is yet another headache.

Is there something off the shelf, or an easy way to do this?
