I've been wondering about this for a while now...

Everybody knows NFS is insecure. Right. So no-one uses it. Why not simply
modify NFS to use encryption? Why not?


I wouldn't say that no one uses NFS, secure or not.

See here on ways to encrypt NFS traffic:

Here is the "Secure NFS RFC"
http://csrc.nist.gov/publications/nistpubs/800-7/node184.html#securerpc

For AIX:

Looks like it works on BSD and Solaris:
