Yes, you can use virt-customize provided by libguestfs-tools:
virt-customize -a image.qcow2 --run-command 'yum install -y something'

There are some instructions for this on the downstream Director documentation. See section 6.3.5 in

It's not clear to me what kind of encryption you would like to achieve here, something like SSL connectivity for the Openstack endpoints?
