Encrypted drives and sharing

I have a debian server that I use as a file server that has a large volume on it for storage. Id like to encrypt that drive to protect it. Since it is a file server, I access it via ssh, scp, and samba. Is there a way to encrypt the drive and still be able to share it over the network? Something that if I just connect via samba it authenticates and decrypts the data for my use?
