I have been researching the same concept, and had been focusing on PGP to avoid spoof / hijack attempts. I came across this solution. I am sure there is more out there:
My idea was to send an encrypted request (and PGP is even available on droid tablets now), and have an isolated server with its own mail account process the request. Results would then be sent from serveR via encrypted message to the originator of the request.
With a minimum of capital outlay.
Benefits, I think are multifold: mainly a way to tunnel through carrier grade NAT; BUT ALSO allowing access to SOHO systems. or from otherwise limited devices (i.e. devices with only SMS or mail capabilities), or communication between automated servers through a commonly allowed service (POP3).
In the end, the issue requires this:
Secure authentication and transmission of traffic.
Batch execution, or if not, some way to track state.
