Partial file download verification

Hi everyone,

I was just wondering about something and couldn't find the answer on Google...

Do any of you know of software that can verify the integrity of large downloads as they are progressing, and then re-download only the corrupted segments? I know bittorrent does this, but I'm looking for something that can work with data only going one way - no uploading from the client side. Ideally I'd also like this to work over an encrypted connection, although I guess this is always possible with ssh tunnels. Any ideas?

Well.... it doesn't do it QUITE that way, but you could get that sort of effect out of rsync.
