Topic: Security -editing forms on the fly

This might not belong in developers, but what I am looking for is something to edit a pdf file on the server side on the fly, and hopefully still have security implemented.

I am trying to do online testing using secure forms, I would like to have a cgi create a pdf based on values entered in and looked up in a database.

i was originally looking at writing a perl or php cgi-script to edit and insert the correct values into the form. I can change the values of some of the fields (when I find them *lol*) but i get an error saying the document needs to be repaired, is there a checksum on the file or the value and where would that be located?

Also I was testing an insecure document does this information get scrambled with the security features?
If so can i encrypt on the fly? (it doesnt have to be secure on the server)
