Topic: supply password to PDF through ASP.NET

Let's see if I can explain this well.
We have a hundred or so PDF's on our site. We want to limit access to some based on whether a member is logged in or not. Login status is controlled through a asp.NET session variable. I have read a few things about the Adobe Acrobat SDK, but didn't want to pay for it until I was sure it could do what we want.
My solution is to encrypt all the PDF's with the same or a few different passwords. If the user is logged in and clicks a link to a pdf, the password to the pdf is supplied via asp.net and it can be opened. If they aren't logged in or try to directly access the pdf through the address bar, the couldn't open it without the password. Hope this makes sense. Does anyone know if such a thing is possible or if the Acrobat SDK can perform this type of function through asp.net?
Thanks for your help in advance.
