There is this very helpful post detailing how to lock and unlock your bitcoin wallet using walletlock and walletpassphrase api calls. Unfortunately the litecoin api does not boast these features.

I was wondering if there is a similar strategy in place for securing a litecoin wallet perhaps using the lockunspent command?

Actually, Litecoin-Qt/litecoind v0.8.5.2 and probably several v0.8 releases before do support these api calls.

The --help doesn't seem to have any entries on these commands but this is true of Bitcoin-Qt/bitcoind as well so if you want to submit a bug report or code it and submit a pull request, please do so at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin.
