Topic: Adding extra security to PDF documents

Is there any way of adding sequential security to a PDF form? I am thinking of a situation where a standard form of contract, with a password, enabling fields to be completed only, is downloaded and completed before being sent to a third party. It must not be possible for the third party to alter the completed fields, which constitute the terms of the contract; it would therefore be desirable to be able to apply a second layer of security to the document at the point at which the fields have been completed. At present the only way of ensuring security is to complete the form, print it out and either scan it or fax it to the third party. It would be more convenient to be able to email it to the third party, but as it is a legally binding contract, this involves obvious risks. Thank you.
