    Some sites allow you to connect via https. You can also enable encryption in your client. If you're using uTorrent, it's under Options -> Preferences -> Bittorrent.

    yes, you can enable encryption but all that does is encrypt to .torrent file so ur ISP can't use bandwidth throttling....im talking bout encryption of the data from the site to ur pc ;-)..kinda like when you RDC using an ssl tunnel

    Like I said, you can access some trackers via SSL (https). I know that ScT and FTN have this, I'm sure there are more.
