Printing a PDF with Password Security

Lev Seltzer

I have a PDF that I created and I put in a password to prevent printing and text-copying. However, I want to give the password to one person to let them print. They only have Acrobat Reader 11 (and not the full version of acrobat). I looked for a place to enter this password (in the Reader) to enable printing, and I can't find it.
Is there a way to do this? Or must I create a second PDF with security disabled to enable this one user to print?

Thank you.
