My boss asked me this earlier today. Can anyone point me in the right direction?:
There are a number of programs out there that will strip a PDF file and turn them into another format, Word for example. There are also programs out there that will strip a password that has been set in a PDF file at the administrative level. My understanding that there is a user level password that can be set, that prevents most of these type of programs from working.
Can you look into a program that will help us password protect our PDF files after they become PDF files. Not sure if there is one available but right now folks are using several different methods to generate their PDF files. Some of these methods may not allow for password protecting the files or the process is not well understood for the products they are using. Some folks are using the Adobe PDFWriter which is basically a printer driver and I am unclear of it's capabilities to create passwords. In any case it would be nice to protect these files after they are PDF files or figure out a standard method by which we can protect our PDF documents.
