Topic: Want to ensure PDFs cannot be searched

Hello everyone. I work for a company that uses alot of pdfs for documents that need to be printable. These are all located behind a login. Unfortunately, we've discovered recently that certain keywords are causing these pdfs to pull up in search engines. Some of this information is secure and we cannot have this happening because of it. Apparently when the user clicks on the link to the pdf from a search engine they're managing to bypass our login because (from what I've been told), the pdfs are "stand alone" documents not located directly within the secure area of our site.
Is there anyway we can make our pdfs unsearchable? Our goal basically is to have pages that are print-friendly (without our navigational menus, etc) but not reachable from the general Net. Thanks in advance!!
