    • Enhanced security breaks printing

      Several of our clients who use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC have complained of issues printing PDF's. After troubleshooting the issue we found the cause to be the Enhanced Security option located in Security (Enhanced) in the Preferences. If this option is enabled, disabling it allows our staff to print. We even came to a point where we had to enable it and then disable it to fix printing. This issue seems to have started several weeks ago.

      OS affected:
      Windows 10 Pro
      Windows 7 Pro

      • Allow for multiple change options to be selected in Password Security.

        Please break out all the current change options to allow more than one option be enabled under password protection. Really have a need to be able to have two of the four options (e.g., insert, delete, comment, fill and sign) available. What would be really nice is if we could select the Tools that are not available under password security and in any configuration. Your consideration would be so very appreciated!!!!

        • Support symmetric curve signature / PSS padding validation

          Currently the PDF signature routines of Acrobat fail when using certain certificates. As an SecSigner employee explains, this may be due to symmetric curve crypt algorithms or using PSS padding, cf. https://seccommerce.com/anforderungen-an-den-secsigner-im-rahmen-von-etsi/ (in German)

          E.g. current PDF files by amazon.de result in the following error (German Acrobat DC installation, no pending updates):

          Fehler bei Unterschriftsprüfung.

          Bei der Prüfung ist ein Fehler aufgetreten:

          Interner kryptografischer Bibliotheksfehler.
          Fehlercode: 0x2726

          • Have instructions on how to remove a "to do" nag message to sign a document

            It took me several days to find where one can remove a "to do" message to sign a document that popped up on the acrobat document list. It was over a year old and not important or wanted. It is not obvious what one should do to manage the message to deal with it or make it go away.

            I did figure out how, but it is not documented to well. nor could I find any mention in the help system.

            • Certum Digital Identification CA SHA2

              Adobe AATL contains the certificate of Certum Digital Identification CA SHA2 (Serial: 66 DA EF 03 DB 84 61 91 6B 25 BA 83 FB 17 4E 13)

              However, due to an error in the policy constraint of the CA certificate, all certificates issued by this certificate is not valid.

              The current Certificate policies contain: 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.11
              However, all end entity certificates contain: (either) 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.11 | 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.12 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.13 | 1.2.616.1.113527.2.5.1.6.14

              The three missed policy constraint created the error of
              "Invalid Policy Constraint"

              This error was initially reported by myself on May 24th, 2018 at Twitter direct message.

              • Digital Certificates for Mobile Devices

                Usually when something needs to be digitally signed or validated with a certificate, it's because it is upper management. In my experience, upper management tend to be on the move a lot more and since certificates are only available to their computer, it would be handy if they could also digitally sign from their phone. This is also very useful when they're on vacation too.

                • Security - Add Ability to Prevent Attaching as Email

                  We have proprietary software that serves up PDF files stored in a location that end-users do not have access to. These documents can contain PHI and PII. We want to prevent the ability for users to send copies the document outside of our system. We have been able to lock down every aspect except for attaching to an email. There is a toolbar and menu option for this feature.

                  For security reasons I would like the ability to disable the attach as email feature the same way that I can disable WebMail.

                  • Write temp/cache data to programfiles directory

                    Multiple components of the Acrobat suite are writing to various sub-directories of Program Files (Adobe, Common Files\Adobe) as a user-mode process. In some cases, this is accommodated by modification to the default ACL model of the directories to allow the process to perform these writes, or it is relying on the UAC VirtualStore to re-direct the writes to a per-user location.

                    This is not the security model of Windows and these types of writes should either be going to the user's profile or \programdata\ when the permissions model supports this behavior natively. Having user-mode processes write to Program Files causes…

                      • Restrict editing/copying not working (when allowing printing)

                        The feature "Restrict editing/copying" under Permissions not working when allowing printing. This is a problem as I need to send documents where people can read/print them but shouldn't be able to copy/edit the text to protect our intelectual property as much as possible.
                        I have worked with the Adobe support team and they have acknowledged the bug and asked me to detail it here. Please include a fix in your next release, thanks.

                          • Validation of signed PDFs against (all applicable national) law(s)

                            In Switzerland, as in the EU and many other countries, appropriately digitally signed documents in PDF format are legally fully equivalent to paper-based original documents, signed in handwriting by (one or more) signatories in the presence of witnesses.

                            Country specific differences in national law applicable to establishing the legal adequacy of digitally signed documents with their paper-based equivalents require country specific validation of digitally signed documents against applicable sets of criteria.

                            The following criteria need to be fulfilled, in order for a digitally signed PDF file to be considered VALID in the sense of LEGALLY COMPLIANT with the…

                                • make duplicate digital signature fields

                                  Whenever a digital signature field is added, we do not get the option to duplicate it. This would be very helpful in cases where same person has to sign on multiple pages in a document.
                                  At present, it is giving the option to duplicate across pages, however, it is not working nor it is giving any error message.
                                  Please include this feature in Acrobat, or grey out the duplicate across pages option.

                                  • SignData produces bad XML Signature when ref target contains Id attribute

                                    There is a very strange bug in Adobe's XML Data Signatures support. If the target of a manifest includes an "Id" element, the correct transform will not run.

                                    ```xml
                                    <Reference URI="#410">
                                    <Transforms>
                                    <Transform Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2001/10/xml-exc-c14n#WithComments"/>
                                    </Transforms>
                                    <DigestMethod Algorithm="http://www.w3.org/2000/09/xmldsig#sha1"/>
                                    <DigestValue>6LIx9NZKzbyFXC+qOW/n9bo0RS8=</DigestValue>
                                    </Reference>
                                    ```

                                    If I remove the Id attribute from the Data DOM, it works

                                    ```xml
                                    <Reference URI="">

                                    <signData target="ballot_stub" ref="$data.signatures">
                                    <manifest>
                                    <ref>$data.RBM</ref>
                                    </manifest>
                                    </signData>
                                    ```

                                      • Password hint for Password protected PDF

                                        provide user to display
                                        message in password protected files, with password
                                        hint that can be given by the pdf creator - example to
                                        open password protected file, user provides hint - first
                                        4 charters of your name + year of birth
                                        so the user opening files know what combination has to
                                        be provided to open the file.

                                        it will save huge
                                        inconvenience as different credit card companies,

                                        • It is unacceptable that I cannot secure my document from being exported but still allow printing.

                                          When I secure a document to prevent it from being exported, then anyone I share the document with is unable to print it. I cannot separate printing from preventing export of the document as part of security.
