I don't know much about CCMP/AES, but I thought about the same problem
too.  I was thinking to use VPN over the link, and the bridge LAN over
IPsec interface.

The idea seems pretty wacky to me.  Has anybody tried this?  Will this work?

In short,
	. WDS creates wlan0wd0 on top of wlan0
	. IPSec creates ipsec0 over wlan0wds0
	. bridging tool bridges ipsec0 and eth0
