public interface PdfEncryptionSettings

Encryption settings are described in section 3.5 (more specifically section 3.5.2) of the PDF Reference 1.7. They are explained in section 3.3.3 of the book 'iText in Action'. The values of the different preferences were originally stored in class PdfWriter, but they have been moved to this separate interface for reasons of convenience.

Method Detail

setEncryption

void setEncryption(byte[] userPassword,
                   byte[] ownerPassword,
                   int permissions,
                   int encryptionType)
                   throws DocumentException

The open permissions for the document can be AllowPrinting, AllowModifyContents, AllowCopy, AllowModifyAnnotations, AllowFillIn, AllowScreenReaders, AllowAssembly and AllowDegradedPrinting. The permissions can be combined by ORing them.

Parameters:
userPassword - the user password. Can be null or empty
ownerPassword - the owner password. Can be null or empty
permissions - the user permissions
encryptionType - the type of encryption. It can be one of STANDARD_ENCRYPTION_40, STANDARD_ENCRYPTION_128 or ENCRYPTION_AES128. Optionally DO_NOT_ENCRYPT_METADATA can be ored to output the metadata in cleartext
Throws:
DocumentException - if the document is already open

setEncryption

void setEncryption(Certificate[] certs,
                   int[] permissions,
                   int encryptionType)
                   throws DocumentException
Sets the certificate encryption options for this document. An array of one or more public certificates must be provided together with an array of the same size for the permissions for each certificate. The open permissions for the document can be AllowPrinting, AllowModifyContents, AllowCopy, AllowModifyAnnotations, AllowFillIn, AllowScreenReaders, AllowAssembly and AllowDegradedPrinting. The permissions can be combined by ORing them. Optionally DO_NOT_ENCRYPT_METADATA can be ored to output the metadata in cleartext

Parameters:
certs - the public certificates to be used for the encryption
permissions - the user permissions for each of the certificates
encryptionType - the type of encryption. It can be one of STANDARD_ENCRYPTION_40, STANDARD_ENCRYPTION_128 or ENCRYPTION_AES128.
Throws:
