iPhone Core Data Encryption - encrypt your sqlite databse

in IOS4 Apple introduced a new feature NSFileProtectionComplete to encrypt the filesystem.

I found very useful article. 

Remember that we can apply this only with Device not with simulator.

And on device you should enable the passcode security under Settings -> General

If you have iTunes login, see the apple video about security
session 209 securing application data in category : Core OS


We need to prompt a message to the user if file system is not protected, So
How to know the device is password protected ? or How to know the filesystem(database) is encrypted.?
