using POI HSSF. We can read encrypted workbooks, but is creation of such workbooks supported?

Yes, encryption support is read-only. Encryption is well documented in MSDN - look at MS-OFFCRYPTO
and MS-XLS specifications. I think that it would be easier to implement encryption support
for XLSX than for XLS.
