« WordPerfect X4 Released | Main | Security - At What Cost and From What Threats »

If your recipient also has Acrobat professional, they can easily un-secure the file to do what they want with it. I received a pdf that was secured to where I couldn't print it. Acrobat Pro removed the security in about 5 minutes for me. Digital signatures are much more secure, but I am sure they can be broken as well. All the security in the world is useless if you are dealing with a dishonest or unethical person. Conversely, if your working with an ethical individual, no security is necessary, other than to protect clients' confidentiality. The hard part is knowing who you are working with.
