OpenVPN http://martybugs.net/wireless/openwrt/openvpn.cgi
IPsec   http://wiki.openwrt.org/IPSec

There's some hardware support for crypto acceleration 
http://www.linux-mips.org/wiki/Broadcom_SOCs , but it
is probably not supported in alternative firmwares yet,
so CPU load will be high at low (some 300 kByte/s
with Blowfish are reported) throughput.
