Encryption

The PDF Encryption Module encrypts PDF output using 128-bit AES encryption compatible with Adobe Acrobat 7 and later. This helps companies support compliance initiatives where resource and document security is important to control for resources and files at rest. The module supports setting both the User and Owner passwords (also referred to as the Permissions Password or Master Password) for the document and setting the document handling permissions supported by the PDF standard. The passwords can be static or set dynamically based on content extracted from the print data, metadata or from an external source.

Rubika also supports processing encrypted PDF documents by applying the PDF password as files are processed to decrypt them. This enables files and resource libraries at rest to be encrypted and then be unencrypted at run time as they are referenced. Furthermore, the security options set in the step can only be changed by a user who enters the correct owner password.
