Hello I encrypted a database using these steps...
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc278098(v=sql.100).aspx

Now when I query the database's encryption_state i get '3' saying its encrypted so far so good.. When i delete/drop the certificate used to encrypt this database for testing purposes I can still open the table and view the data... I tried making a copy of the .mdf file dropping the database then re attaching the file after i deleted the certificate but still I can open the table no problem..What am i missing how can I see that the database is actually encrypted...

Thanks,

Alex
