Topic: Adobe PDF SDK and Security Handlers

I have already created a plug-in to programmatically obtain permissions to view a document and this works well within Acrobat (Standard/Pro). However, I now need to programmatically set hundreds of files to use the new handler from a server application.

My questions are:

1. Can the Adobe PDF SDK set which securityHandler to use in a document? If not, what 3rd party library has this functionality.

2. Are there any examples of doing this kind of thing? (Preferably not on the Standard securityHandler as custom handlers require more details set-ups)

Before posting, please note this is not a Plug-in issue, it is an offline processing issue. Also, using the DDE interface to talk to Acrobat is out as the server is unlikely to be windows based.

Many Thanks
