freeware to fingerprint a pdf file so that it can only be opened by specific AD Ids in our organization

We have this sensitive PDF report which is already encrypted with password.  Our PCs/laptops are
controlled such that USB are blocked & encrypted files (ie with zip password) can't be emailed/copied
out.

We have a restricted distribution for this file but are simply unfamiliar with our our new endpoint DLP
product Digital Guardian.

Is there any freeware that we can install such that prior to opening this PDF report, Adobe Acrobat reader
will check if the user opening it is in the list of authorized staff (based on the AD Id that the user login to
the PC or domain)?  Step by step instruction is appreciated.

Actually you are looking at right mgmt for PDF, and I doubt you can have free tool for that unless you develop it. Here is one solution that ties to device or specific user but it is based on IP instead from AD

Create a license agreement to control viewing of PDF files - for all users

Nonetheless, be sure to keep the Permissions Password private from everyone except those who are allowed to modify the document.
