Is it possible to create an encrypted tape duplication of a non-encrypted disk backup (tapes used primarily used for off site storage)? I'm reading this:
but I don't understand if "tape encryption" means that you do the backup directly to tape and encrypt on the fly (and to not disk first)

Sure - no problem.
Source can be anything in Netbackup.
Encryption on tape using KMS is controlled by the volume pool being prefixed with ENCR_
Encryption takes place in the tape drives hardware and is wire speed fast. Work really well and is a such transparent when configured.
This has just been published:

...which also includes sections around encryption.
