Control PDF documents in Adobe Reader, without passwords
FileOpen's suite of document rights management solutions offer native support for PDF in the free Adobe Reader, thanks to our longstanding partnership with Adobe Systems as a certified security provider.
Using FileOpen's document security and rights management solutions, you can distribute encrypted, native PDF documents to your users for viewing in Adobe Reader and Adobe Acrobat Standard/Suite/Pro. The lightweight FileOpen Plug-in for Adobe Reader enforces your usage policies at the client end, authenticating seamlessly for every open and print attempt. It also enables expiration and revocation of permissions, even after delivery.
By distributing secure PDFs via the FileOpen Plug-in for Adobe Reader, you can be sure that only users with permission may view and print your documents. Your end-users will appreciate not having to download a bulky new viewer or enter passwords each time they want to view a document—after an initial registration; their experience will be no different than viewing normal unencrypted PDF files.

FileOpen controls and protects PDF content in the manner described by the PDF Specification, via a Security Handler. The FileOpen Encryptor applies industry-standard 128-bit RC4 or 128/256-bit AES cipher to native PDF files. The keys used by FileOpen's Encryptor are generated by the document owner and stored separately from the document itself on the server of that publisher, or FileOpen's server in our RightsManager solution. Only the document owner knows the decryption key, and keys are dispensed for decryption only for authenticated users; neither FileOpen Systems nor any third party has a "backdoor" way of opening the encrypted files. The client/server communication for key transmission is routed over SSL, at the discretion of the document owner. If offline permission is granted, the plug-in stores keys in a local file encrypted using RC4 with a 128-bit key.
