Topic: Security Programming Questions

Hi All,

I have to write a little application to write which takes a PDF document, applies certain security settings to the document and saves the new document. Before I do this I need to ask a couple of questions :

(1) Are the security settings in PDF documents programmable ? If not, forget the rest of the questions.

(2) If I write a plug-in using the Acrobat SDK, can I write it in Visual Basic or does it have to be in either C or Javascript ?

(3) If I write it as a separate application in VB.NET, for example, are the security settings available as COM objects with their associated properties ?

(4) If I write it as an external application, do I have to buy the SDK or is there a freeware download of the appropriate DLL anywhere ?

Many thanks in advance for any help received.
