I need a private, secure blog that will store my posts in an encrypted form. Does one exist?

I'm working with a distant team on a project, and I need a secure private blog to facilitate collaboration. The requirements for the blog are that it support user accounts, multiple authors, require logins by SSL (https:// vs. http://) (this could be enforced via plugin), store blog posts in an encrypted form, and of course I'd like the encryption/decryption to be seamless for my users. Up to this point we've been using the service at WideBlog
, but it's not very flexible, and it's been a little flaky recently. We'd also prefer to have the blog on our own hosting to remove a layer of trust.
In my hunting around, I haven't had much luck. The biggest sticking point seems to be the requirement that posts be stored in an encrypted form. I've found some solutions that will "encrypt" passwords with MD5. But I want to encrypt more than just passwords, and the use of MD5 is itself a little questionable. I'm looking for something more along the lines of AES.
Does what I want exist?
