Read protect an excel file generated with POI

I'm trying to create a protected excel file with POI
I've found sheet.protectSheet(password) makes the sheet write-protected

According to this link - http://office.microsoft.com/en-in/excel-help/secure-a-workbook-with-a-password-HP001112410.aspx
We can also make files read-protected (we need to enter a password before the sheet data is shown)
Is this possible with POI or any other API?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
