Does anyone know how to add standard security to an existing PDF document programmatically.  I don't want to pay for a standalone program such as SecurSign from Appligent.  Is there a free package, or one with a minimal cost that I can work into my Java program.  Thanks.

What do you exactly mean by "security"? Something like a password to open the document?

I just want to apply standard pdf security.  These are the options you have when you do save as... on a pdf and select Standard from the Security drop down box.

Hi

I guess you do need to have access to adobe security
architecture APIs to integrate it with java

But maybe you could look into third party tools

It looks like I can create a secured document using the iText PDF-Java library.
