Topic: More security to secured PDF forms?

I am thinking of situation, that would allow me to sell online some Active PDF forms for users of Reader.
As far, as I know, I do an active form (which uses plenty of JavaScript) and want to secure it. So I set one master password for me, and another for user.

My question is: How can I make unique user password for each user?

I noticed some useful tools on, but, as for now, these are too expensive for me.
So I'm thinking of implementing some other security procedures or sth to my files.
Don't know, maybe should I write some JavaScript code that would automatically generate a number depending on user name?

So, the next question is: how can I hide a JavaScript code inside a document? Because, If I open a file in Acrobat, I can look at the code even when it's not possible to edit.

Of course, I can also break master password using e.g. Ovis pdf-recover, but I just want to hide these data to a standard user of my forms.

All software I have is Acrobat and all Ovis tools (Universe Software).

thanks in advance
