PDF Security

Post by kwaltman » Sat Jan 24, 2015 12:37 am

I am trying to set the security settings on a document. But the .EncryptionSystem property object and all of it's properties on a PDFDocument are readonly. How does one set the actual properties. Ifs there another method that has to be used to set the properties?

kwaltman,
you can use constructors to create new objects with desired properties. Here is an example:

Code: Select all


EncryptionSystem encSystem = new EncryptionSystem(
    EncryptionAlgorithm.RC4, 40, "userpwd", "ownerpwd", UserAccessPermissions.ExtractTextAndGraphics);

using (PdfDocument document = new PdfDocument(PdfFormat.Pdf_16, encSystem))
{
    document.Pages.Add(PaperSizeKind.A4);
    document.Save(filename);
}

encSystem.Dispose();

If you want to change security properties of an existing PDF document, do it in the same way. The following code should work:

Code: Select all


EncryptionSystem encSystem = new EncryptionSystem(
    EncryptionAlgorithm.RC4, 40, "userpwd", "ownerpwd", UserAccessPermissions.ExtractTextAndGraphics);

using (PdfDocument documentOriginal = new PdfDocument(inFilename))
using (PdfDocument documentChanged = new PdfDocument(PdfFormat.Pdf_16, encSystem))
{
    documentChanged.Pages.AddRange(documentOriginal.Pages.ToArray());
    documentChanged.Save(outFilename);
}

encSystem.Dispose();
