It doesn't, yet, unfortunately.

If you need encryption, you will need to either do it at a lower layer
(VPN), which is usually quite nasty, or else modify the TSP protocol
to do encryption using something like SASL, which is also nasty.

You can also encrypt per message, using pre-shared keys, which is the
least nasty option IMO.

I do hope we find a better general solution at some stage; you are not
the only person who hits this.
