Generic tunnel driver?

[My feed has been very shaky recently; I'd appreciate a CC of
any replies.]

Is there any generic tunnel device available for Linux? I'd like to
create a ssh-secured tunnel between two hosts/subnets over an insecure
network, and the easiest way for this would be to have a /dev/tun0
as an interface to a userland program which encapsulates IP packets
and then sends them on their merry way using ssh (and also receives
data packets the same way).

Instant secure NIS and NFS, here you come :-)
