Acrobat itself has a security option but if you are generating the document via a different method you may not be able to set it properly.

HOW do you generate the PDF?  Dynamically or via the Adobe Distiller?

You need to find that out.  It may be you can change the settings in the script used to generate the PDF to enable the security but more likely this is not possible short of manually opening the file in Acrobat and enabling security there.

Mostly correct.  There are other application than Acrobat that allow editing of the PDF file but for the most part Reader cannot affect the PDF.
