I'm buy ZYXEL NAS 2bay ZYXEL NAS326
i have problem of solution.
My proxmox server is on X location, my server NAS is X location
PROXMOX -> local network -> internet -> local network -> NAS .
Which Protocols/standard can used too backup to nas?
i been green of the storage and nas....
i try ftp on NAS , but nas don't have share too location pre ftp user.
now i think try used iSCSI but have question:
iSCSI good protocol ? - it is use encrypted of server RSA2048 cert? when used authentication chap ?
I think you are asking:
"If I use an iSCSI storage for a proxmox backup over the internet, will it be encrypted?"

Perhaps a better way would be to backup to a local storage and then use an encrypted file transfer to your offsite backup? ftp is not an encrypted protocol but you could use sftp, ftps, scp, rsync, etc.

I hope that I have answered your question.
