An encrypted protocol could be implemented with an SSH tunnel,
ie svn+ssh://

As for "virtual users" - I think you mean users who do not have accounts
on the server itself. Reading this part of the book
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s03.html seems to suggest that
tunneling causes an external authentication. Perhaps SSH could have
"virtual users" - I don't know you would have to ask on the SSH list.

But if you _do_not_ use a tunnel I would expect you could create as many
users and passwords as you'd like in svnserve.conf without requiring
these to be users of the system.

Cheers,
Chris
