L2VPN Pseudowire Redundancy/IPSEC

I have a customer with L2VPN Pseudowire Redundancy configured and they want a more secure environment and would like to implement IPSEC and still maintain the Pseudowire Redundancy. The only way I can come up with is to put a device behind each side of the L2VPN tunnel to do the IPSEC VPN. Is there a way to do Pseudowire Redundancy with IPSEC and not L2VPN? As far as I know you can not because its run on layer 2 and IPSEC is layer 3, but maybe I am missing something.

Thanks.

Re: L2VPN Pseudowire Redundancy/IPSEC

The L2VPN Pseudowire Redundancy feature enables you to configure your network to detect a failure in the network and reroute the Layer 2 (L2) service to another endpoint that can continue to provide service.
