I follow this procedure (there may be others):

1) Open database for exclusive use in Access.
2) Use Tools/Security/Set Database Password to assign a password. I think the password is used as the encryption key, but am not sure.
3) Close the database
4) Use Tools/Security/Encrypt to encrypt the database
5) For my purposes, I also make the .mdb file readonly.
6) Supply the password when you connect (OnPassword event, PromptForPassword = True)

After this I can no longer see the data in my .mdb file with a binary browser, so I guess it is really encrypted. My program doesn't seem any slower when using the encrypted version.
