Topic: Doubt on Acrobat security... (Via Email)

Hi All,



I am developing a security plug-in for acrobat, as normal i am providing
a new security handler for generating the ' key '. My doubt is, is there
a way where in which i can provide my own encryption method for
encrypting  the string & stream data in the PDF file rather that
use the Acrobat's MD5 + RC4 encryption method. I have read in the PDF
Spec that the /V 1 key in the encrypt dict has to do something with
this...!!.

I shall feel much obliged if any body can give a detailed explanation
about this, if this is do able, are there any legal problems to this, if
do able how?.



Thanks in advance,



Regards,


Shine Vijayan,
