What is the Password option in Drumlin for?

PDFs prepared for publication to secure format using Drumlin should be set with No Security within Adobe Acrobat or similar software – Drumlin adds our own security framework to protect your files. With Adobe reader a PDF can be set to have various security settings, including requiring a Password to Open a file. Drumlin offers a similar option, purely for documents that are to be read using Drumlin or the Windows versions of Javelin. In general there is no need to use this facility, indeed we recommend that it is not used in most cases – it exists mainly to prevent someone from opening a document when a PC that is authorized to view that file has left their PC unattended and is not provided as part of the security/encryption framework.
